Reload (all version)


I get errors when Reload tries to run a backup; Cannot establish connectivity.  How do I manually mount the GroupWise server?


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

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

2) Create an NFS Server Export of the Post Office directory on the Groupwise Server

3) Create a mount to the remote file system.  This is done using the "mount" command.
- mount -t nfs <ip of remote server:exported path> /<path to local directory>
 example: mount -t nfs /mnt/temp

4) Change directory to the newly mounted directory, this should look like the root of the post office directory.
 example: cd /mnt/temp
