CHAPTER 20 Distributed File System Administration

20.1 Distributed File Systems

There are two distributed file systems used by SunOS, the Network File System (NFS) and the Remote File Sharing (RFS) system. These both operate over the network and allow you to share files. The latter also allows you to share devices. These are both available in SunOS 4.1.X and 5.2, though RFS did not survive beyond 5.2. The commands for using these programs are different in the two releases. A machine can simultaneously run both NFS and RFS.

20.1.1 - The Network File System
