I have a new server which is running 64-bit Linux 5.4, however my backup server (running on a Windows server) does not support this version of Linux and upgrading my backup software isn't an option at this point. I wanted to have Samba installed on the LInux server but I was informed that isn't an option either. The recommendation (and apparently the only option I have) is to install NFS on my backup server. I downloaded the client from Microsoft. I'm not familiar with NFS as I've never used or implemented it. What I want is to have the Linux server back itself up to a file share on my Windows server. So I guess my question is what do I install on my backup server? Server for NFS? Client for NFS? Gateway for NFS? All of them?
