only one issue with that. The server in question is an emc clereon(sorry
not at work to look at the specifics) and at this point the only access I
have to it is a web interface and am unable to access a command line.

Also a stupid question my plan is to set up another server to access the
nfs share to provide better email service.

would this impact it in any way?

thank you again
