Can't Mount Root of SCO Openserver 5.0.6 using NFS in Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2008-06-25
My scenario is that I need to mount the root directory (/) of a SCO OpenServer 5.0.6 using NFS on a Windows Server 2003 R2. I have installed SFU 3.5. I have export the / directory on the SCO Server. I cannot mount it in Windows. When I try to map a drive to xx.xx.xx.xx:/, it says "The drive could not be mapped because no network was found." I can successfully mount any other exported directories of the SCO server so I at least know that it NFS does work. I believe it is a limitation of UNIX Services for Windows, but I may/hopefully am wrong.
Since I couldn't mount the root directory, I then decided to try another way. I thought I could create a symbolic link to / in hopes that I could then mount in windows as /rootlink, but SCO cannot export a symbolic link.
Any ideas how I can get one of these options to work and/or a different idea on how I can get access to the SCO / directory from the Windows Server? All help is appreciated!
