  • communicating with VMware LINUX

    we are trying to do NFS with a windows 2003 server (NOT R2).. i know that there is software that works with windows so that it can talk to linux
    Does anyone have any suggestions? Something simple. I remember SAMBA but i cannot find how to install it.

    any suggestions would be awesome

      Blah nevermind my post, I see you don't have R2, but I believe you can download SFU as a stand alone add-on.

        do i need a seperate Linux server or can i install it on a vmware machine?

        I am trying to "mount" a NFS of a directory from a windows server into a vmware environment to recover sql databases. We are trying to cut down the RTO by mounting the drive directly to the vm rather than copy and pasting the data back to the vm.

          SFU installes on Windows. You should just install R2 and it will be included with that.
