NAS backup setup in Linux

NAS backup setup in Linux::

For setting up NAS backup, it should be supported by the OS.  CIFS should be enabled in the kernel. If not enabled, it can be enabled via kernel compilation, which comes under Network File Systems.

Make sure that cifs-util is installed on the box.

We need to mount the backup machine to run the backup or we will have to use the commands/protocols like ssh  to run the backup which won't be appropriate.

Use the nmap (network mapper) command to find the different host and the services running on the hosts.

nmap -sP
