Concise steps to Setting up Solaris NFS & Samba
Posted on 2008-09-30
I just got a decommissioned Sun V125.
I would like to set it up as an NFS & Samba so that Windows & Linux clients could do
remote backup to it.
a)is Solaris 9 or Solaris 10 a better choice for this?
b)I can install the full Solaris (including Developer's options) or what's the minimum
that I should install so that I don't use too much disk space & yet could have NFS,
Samba & ssh server+client enabled?
c)Kindly give me the concise steps/instructions on how to set up & enable Samba
d)with Samba enabled, can Windows clients just map a network drive to it?
(ie at Windows client's MSDOS prompt, do "net use drive: \\file_server_IP\sharename
