    Default NFS : can't mount NFS from linux to sco

    I have a working nfs share on a linux (RH 7) box that is mountable from
    another linux server (ie it works I can read and write)

    When I try to mount it from the Sco 5.04 box I get an error:
    mount: invalid fs type <NFS>

    Any Ideas

    Thanks
    Brian

    If not, try by adding it, relink the kernel and reboot the system.

    Brian,

    could you show us the exact syntax of the mount command you issued to
    mount the remote share ?

    Thanks,

    command:
    mount -f NFS rama:/home/bbxshare /mnt
    result :
    mount: invalid fs type <NFS>

    Thanks

    use 'nfs', not 'NFS'.

    I did
    mount -f nfs rama:/home/bbxshare /mnt

    but again no joy :

    mount: invalid fs type <nfs>

    Brian,

    if memory serves, when you issue the "mount -f NFS .." (NFS, under SCO
    OS5, __must__ be uppercase), the "frontend" mount locates the NFS mount
    under /etc/fscmd.d/NFS.

    What if you switch under /etc/fscmd.d/NFS ?

    Do you "see" the "mount" command from there?

    Best,
    Roberto
