We have been successfully using Samba to access Unix filesystems on Windows
computers. So far we only had SGI IRIX computers and very few Windows
Recently we have started adding Windows clients to the network and now we
wish to do the reverse i.e. access Windows shared areas from SGI computers,
mainly for backup purposes.
We are using Networker to take automated backups.
We have read the 'smbclient' usage and we could use this to create tar files
to be backed up in SGI. However it is difficult to estimate how much time it
will take to do this regularly and to schedule the automated backup
>From the Samba book, we see that there is 'smbmount' but this in only
available on Linux. Is there any utility which could be used to mount on the
SGI IRIX platform.
