How do I share a directory in UNIX for another UNIX server?

Hi,

Here's my newbie question!

I've two servers with Oracle on. I've created an oralce export (10 GB) on server 1.
Server 2 does not have enough space to copy the export and import it. I'd like to import the export from server 1 to server 2 remotely.
If this was windows I'd create a share on server 1 and map a drive to this on server 2.
Can I do something similar in UNIX?

Regards
Mark
ps can people really smoke on forums!! Smilie

Use NFS.

man exportfs or exports to learn how to export a directory for sharing (sorry about using the word export... it means making a share in UNIX land).

Then you can mount it from a client using:

mount remote-host-name:/remote-dir-that-was-exported /local-mount-dir

The /local-mount-dir is an empty directory on the client.
