26.2. Importing File Systems Manually

File systems can easily be imported manually from an NFS server. The only prerequisite is a running RPC port mapper, which can be started by entering the command rcportmap start as root. Once this prerequisite is met, remote file systems exported on the respective machines can be mounted in the file system just like local hard disks using the command mount with the following syntax:

mount host:remote-path local-path

If user directories from the machine sun, for example, should be imported, use the following command:

mount sun:/home /home
