Common Disk Volume Structures?

» close window

The Question is:

Its a theoretical question: I would like to stick a san between OpenVMS and
 tru64 but I cant find a way to get OpenVMS to open a commonly accessible file
 system. Any ideas?

The Answer is :

  OpenVMS can perform this using NFS and network-based access, but OpenVMS
  and Tru64 UNIX cannot typically directly share a volume-level on-disk
  file system.  OpenVMS can access arbitrary foreign-mounted volumes, but
  this approach requires you to create an application which implements the
  data structures (and potentially the volume and file structures) found
  on the volume.
