    We are needing to store our backups on a Windows Storage Server 2008R2 running a NFS share. I understand this is not the most optimal setup, but our current off site architecture requires me to use this machine. In windows the share in configured to allow anonymous access to the NFS version 3 share.

    I have edited the fstab file to include this line per the CentOS docs: /mnt/backup-share nfs defaults 0 0

    I am getting this error related to the fs type.

    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on,
    missing codepage or helper program, or other error
    (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
    need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
    In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
    dmesg | tail or so

    I searching on the net it seems I may need to install nfs-utilities. I searched installed packages and did not find this software as part of the Cpanel base install.

    Is this the utility I need? Or am I chasing squirrels?

    Any guidance, or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thank you in advanced!

    Hello :)

    You will likely receive more user feedback on this type of issue directly on the CentOS support forums.

    Thank you.
