Can't mount a folder from a remote server

Dear experts here:

I need mount a folder(locates on an Oracle Database server called "Elysium") which is being used for saving our oracle daily backup archives to a test server "Perseus". When I logged onto the Perseus machine and issued "
[root@perseus temp]# mount elysium:/u2/oracle/backup/rman/cronus jasonmountpoint
" command. It gives me error like below: "mount: mount to NFS server 'elysium' failed: RPC Error: Program not registered."  Do I need install NFS server on the Elysium server? Since this folder includes over 50G archives, I have to mount it to help my DBA recover a database.

This is kind of urgent because we need recover that database using RMAN ASAP in our production. Some bad guy dropped a table from database. Any help will be great appreciated.

Thank you.

Some commands for collecting backup information:

[root@perseus temp]# mount -t nfs elysium:/u2/oracle/backup/rman/cronus jasonmountpoint
mount: mount to NFS server 'elysium' failed: RPC Error: Program not registered.
[root@perseus temp]# ps -ef | grep portmap

I followed the procedure from this post:  http://www.unix.com/red-hat/180459-nfs-client-mount-rpc-error-program-not-registered.html

But I got the error:

[root@perseus /]# mount -t nfs 10.10.4.28:/u2/oracle/backup/rman/cronus /share
mount: 10.10.4.28:/u2/oracle/backup/rman/cronus failed, reason given by server: Permission denied
[root@perseus /]


------------------------------

Below is the commands I ran.


solution to nfs server
hello dude,

go to machine 1st (server)and run these command
1-mkdir /share
2-vi /etc/exports
3-/share *(rw,sync)
4-service nfs restart
5-service portmap restart
6-showmount -e 1.2.3.4(your ip address=1.2.3.4 change as per ur req)
you are done on server machine
now go to client machine
1-showmount -e 1.2.3.4
2-mkdir /share2
3-mount -t nfs 1.2.3.4:/share /share2
4-cd /share2

you are done ..(if still have a problem mail me at <removed email address>

note:this is only for the redhat, solaris has different command to mount and share.
