Being less familiar with UNIX/NFS, what would be the best method/protocol/command to move a large amount of user data from a UNIX Server to a Windows 2003 based NAS. Is there anything I should lookout for? Thank you

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Is Samba installed on the UNIX server? that would probably be the easiest way to move your data. Set up Samba, create a share that points to where the data is located, and mount it from your Windows server.

HTH,

Shawn

    A more direct question would be, "What version of UNIX are you running?" If you're actually using Linux, chances are you can install Samba and use that, as the previous poster mentioned. If you're using HP-UX 11i or later, you already have the client installed. For Solaris or AIX, I'd suggest looking a product called Sharity (http://www.obdev.at/products/sharity/index.html). The free install would be just what you need to migrate data from one *nix server to your NAS.

    Thanks for the input... The OS is Solaris 10, so the sharity product looks interesting. We will try it and let you know.
