7019470: How To Manually mount a Netware Server from Reload

The default protocol for mounting a Netware server is NCPFS. Go through the following steps to create a mount;

1) Create a temporary directory under the /mnt directory. In this example will use ‘temp’ (/mnt/temp). This is where a mount will be created for the remote file system.

– mkdir /mnt/temp

2) Create a mount to the remote file system. This is done using the “mount” command.

– ncpmount -A <ip of remote server> -S <netware server name> -U <typeless distinguished name> -V <netware volume name and path> /<path to local directory>

example: ncpmount -A -S gwava1 -U admin.gwava -V vol/grpwise/po1 /mnt/temp

3) Change directory to the newly mounted directory, this should look like the root of the post office directory.

example: cd /mnt/temp
