i have an ancient sunos 5.8 box that shares out some directories to a AIX box. i assumed ( and was pretty sure ) that the sun box was shared out using nfs. but i needed to make a change, and tried to edit /etc/exports - but i didn't find it. i guess it could be a non-standard setup of nfs? so any ideas on how i could find the nfs shares on this sunos box? ( assuming it is nfs - i don't know what else it would be.

    Accepted Solution

    Check our /etc/dfs/dfstab, that what you'll use with Solaris.

    You'll want to run

    $ unshareall

    Open in new window

    Then edit the file, and then

    $ shareall

    Open in new window

    check the man pages on this file and commands for details.
