OSX NFS II

The -P flag is what took me an hour to find. That and the fact that all documentation told me not to use the mount_nfs command, rather it would be called by the mount command. Ever since my E250 was hacked by Taiwanese spammers, I've kept my Solaris box locked down pretty tight - and having been away from the operating system for about a year, I was dumbfounded when I was allowed to share my filesystem but rpcinfo showed nothing. I'd also never before run a showmount command with the -e option. Very cool.

It took me equally as long to NFS mount my OSX box to my Solaris box last month, and ever since my MySql fiasco, I've been wanting to create a backup of my data. You don't just hot-plug a USB DVD burner into a Solaris box. I needed a solution and settled on NFS, but that damn -P option took me way too long. Perhaps its because its too late?

Either way, I'm recording this for my own benefit (as well as yours, gentle reader, should you decide to follow me down this path):

sudo mount_nfs -P quark:/opt/csw/apache/htdocs /Volumes/quark


I ordered Pan's Labyrinth today from Amazon, as neither galinda822 nor I could find it anywhere locally. Currently, I'm listening to the score from the webpage. Anyway, seeing how its already tomorrow, I'm going to bed.

Good night!

The Man of La Mancha

Hear me now
Oh thou bleak and unbearable world,
Thou art base and debauched as can be;
And a knight with his banners all bravely unfurled
Now hurls down his gauntlet to thee!
I am I, Don Quixote,
The Lord of La Mancha,
My destiny calls and I go,
And the wild winds of fortune
Shall carry me onward,
Oh whithersoever they blow.
Whithersoever they blow,
Onward to glory I go!

I'm Sancho! Yes, I'm Sancho!
I'll follow my master till the end.
I'll tell all the world proudly -
I'm his squire! I'm his friend!

Hear me, heathens and wizards
And serpents of sin!
All your dastardly doings are past,
For a holy endeavor is now to begin
And virtue shall triumph at last!

I am I, Don Quixote,
The Lord of la Mancha,
My destiny calls and I go,
And the wild winds of fortune
Will carry me onward,
Oh whithersoever they blow!

I'm Sancho! Yes, I'm Sancho!
I'll follow my master till the end.
I'll tell all the world proudly
I'm his squire! I'm his friend!

Whithersoever they blow,
Onward to glory I {we} go!
