I have two virtual machines on two separate networks. They both run Centos 6.
I use the second as a cheap backup for my first VM via FTP. It works fine, but it would simplify things if I could mount second as a network drive.
Is this possible?
Following this tutorial, the setup on the nfs server seemed to go smoothly. On the client, all went well except when I tried to mount it.
# mount ipaddress:/home/backup /home/backups/ mount.nfs: No such device
Adding an entry in fstab
ipaddress:/home/backup /home/backups nfs auto,noatime,nolock,bg,nfsvers=3,intr,tcp,actimeo=1800 0 0
mount -a gives:
mount.nfs: backgrounding "ipaddress:/home/backup" mount.nfs: mount options: "nolock,bg,nfsvers=3,intr,tcp,actimeo=1800,addr=ipadress"
