How do I manually mount the Groupwise server?
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 192.168.1.111 -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
