Access to Samba Share

Dear,

Is there any way to configure a HPUX server (running 11iv2) as a client of a NAS which is accessible through Samba ? On this NAS, there is no operating system.

Thanks.

Hi,

i am not really sure if this is what you want, but you can use the CIFS client software to mount a samba/windows share on HP-UX.
if this makes any sense to you, you have a BIG problem

May be.
But where to download this module ? Is it available on HPUX 11iV2 cdroms ?

Re: Access to Samba Share

The previous post referred you to the CIFS Server; that's not what you need to solve this problem. The software that enables an HP-UX system to mount a Samba (or Windows) share is the CIFS **Client**, which you can download here:

If you lose this URL in the future, just go to software.hp.com and search for "cifs".

Re: Access to Samba Share

I used following commands on client side:

mkdir /bkp
chmod 777 /bkp
chown root:sys /bkp
mount -F cifs username=x,password=y /server/share_folder /bkp

and I saw that permissions of /bkp have been changed (drwxrwx--- root 500) and I am not able to write into this folder. Why ?

Re: Access to Samba Share

Permissions are not set on the client side, they are set on the server exporting the filesystem.
