Information in this document applies to any platform.
In this environment, most EPM products (including Foundation Services) are on Linux with some Windows specific Products (EPMA) on Windows.
This document assumes that you are using Oracle Linux. Steps may be slightly different for other flavors of Unix.

Note: Some steps require root access.

Goal

 Configure EPM so that the LCM import_export folder is accessible from both Linux and Windows.  This allows you to use LCM for EPM Products on both machines.  This requires both NFS and Samba on Unix.
