I apologize in advance if this a noob question.
I have two servers,
NFS Server: usanfsd01
LINUX Server: usalnxd01
I've to mount the usanfsd01:/nfs/data directory onto the usalnxd01:/lnxwd directory. I know how to do the mount via /etc/fstab. But the only concern is usalnxd01:/lnxwd directory has already some files inside it so because of that the mount is not working. I got no other option but to mount the network share on the lnxwd directory was wondering if there are any other options apart from me having to move the files inside lnxwd directory to somewhere else temporarily and then mount it and then copy the files back.
The concern here is if I move the files inside lnxwd directory even for a while, I'm just worried it might break something else that's being dependent on those files. So I thought I would seek some expert opinion here.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
