Mounting ubuntu partition to xp pro
Posted on 2008-09-29
I am mounting server NFS shared partitions to a windows XP pro system. I assume the XP pro system is working correctly since it is correctly mounting 2 windows shares, 2 Solaris shared mountpoints and 1 linux mount point.
I am attempting to share one last mount point from a new ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy) system. I have downlaoded and installed nfs-kernel-server nfs-common and portmap. The ubuntu system is already correctly mounting nfs partitions from a variety of other systems.
I have worked with different /etc/exports file entries for the one partition I need to share but have not been successful in getting the mount to happen. I get an error message on the XP side indicating that either I need to run the NFS client services (they are obviously running) or it needs to connect to a user name map. I am either running "exportfs -a" or restarting the nfs server processes any time I edit the /etc/exports file.
I assume the issue is on the ubuntu side since the XP system can already mount from several other systems correctly.
Any help is appreciated.
