RE: Can the to path on CPY, CPYTOIMPF, etc be a remote server instead of the IFS ?



fixed

Does anything have to be configured for NFS?
Do I simply need to start NFS server?
Any firewall issues, any additional ports need to be open?

Samba is Windows file sharing for Linux..

Netserver / QNTC is Windows file sharing for IBM i.

AFAIK, a Linux box with Samba has always worked with Netserver / QNTC.

My understanding is that the 7.2 Samba support replaces the IBM Netserver/QNTC code with Samba to provide better (more current) support of Windows file sharing.

NFS has always and is still probably a better choice for IBM i <-- --> Linux.

LOL - but at least they finally gave it to you, man!!

It's not clear to me whether this support is server-only - so that
Linux clients can use NetServer - so I'm not sure if Samba is usable
in mounting to something outside the IFS - in other words, can the IBM
i be a Samba client yet?

Hmmm!

You can do CPY to an NFS or QTNC (Netbios share) if you have the
correct permissions.

We have always found copying to an NFS share to be much more stable.

In regards to the Samba support in V7R2, first you need V7R2 :-)

Then you need someone at IBM to be able to give you instructions on
how to use it.

I wasn't able to get good test instructions from the folks at IBM so
my testing has been waylaid since I'm not a Unix super-expert :-)

Can the to path on CPY, CPYTOIMPF, etc be a remote server instead of
the IFS?
Any config and/or setup to make this work?
Any good docs and/or links on this?

Thank You
