    Hello,

    Would this work to mount an entire raid from one Red Hat Server to an Ubuntu server? How can I mount the entire raid volume? Thanks!

    what should be the entry of fstab for mounting the nfs share directory using user name and password

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Sanjeev,

      To mount nfs share with username and password in Linux, you should add following entry in your fstab file.

      192.168.0.100:/nfsshare /mnt nfs user=administrator,password=pass 0 0
      

      And don’t forget to change above values as per your requirements.
