mount /backup on linux centos

Hi there,

I have a Nas with a share on it and I have a centos linux OS.

On client Linux:
I type the command mount -t /mnt -> ok
I type the command mount -t /mnt/backup -> it is not ok
I type the command mount -t /backup -> it is not ok

Please help, how I can mount /backup  ?  I don't understand ...

Remove "-t" from your commands (it needs an argument) and check again.
You may also try "-t nfs" (if these shares are nfs).

Post output if that does not work.

mount /backup doesn't exists

Can you please post exact messages?
Post output of below commands:
ls -ld /backup
ls -ld /mnt/backup

Open in new window

It looks like you don't have your mountpoints.
