I followed this guide to install mapserver on ubuntu: https://goworldwind.org/mapserver-and-data-installation/ , and when I set the step 3: Mount the MapServer Configuration and Data, I did

sudo mount ip.address.of.nas:name.of.vbox.share /data

There was an error:

Failed to resolve server ip.address.of.nas: Name or service not known

I used the VMware Workstation, anyone know how to solve this problem?

You have to replace "ip.address.of.nas" and "name.of.vbox.share" with the ip address of your nas and the name of your vbox share. You also need to have a NAS device with the data on it. "The data is available on a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device available from the World Wind team. These instructions assume that you have that device." - says that page.

That page is not a guide for installing mapserver generally, its a guide for installing and setting up mapserver for the NASA worldWind data. If all you want to do is run mapserver, try the instructions from the main site:
