7.0 Working with UNIX Machines

This section contains the following topics:

Native File Access for UNIX provides an NFS Server that lets UNIX users access and store files on NetWare® servers. It is an implementation of the Network File System (NFS) protocol. The required software components are installed and run only on the NetWare servers; no additional software is required on the UNIX workstations. UNIX users attach to NetWare storage using NFS over the TCP/IP protocol.

The NSS file system is supported on NFS versions 2 and 3. NFS Server supports mount protocol versions 1, 2, and 3, NFS protocol versions 2 and 3, and Network Lock Manager protocols versions 1, 2, 3 and 4, and status monitor protocol over both UDP and TCP.

Native File Access for UNIX also provides complete Novell® eDirectory™ 8.7.3 enabled Network Information Services (NIS) which enables you to administer UNIX and NetWare users from a single point, namely eDirectory. NIS maintains its information in eDirectory and integrates the user information so that the eDirectory User object represents the NIS user.
