NFS Error: Running old NFS library, requires new NFS library

Hello Everyone,

 

I am trying to share a file but getting error in that. The error are as follows:

Running old NFS library, requires new NFS library.

 

The NFS server OS is HP-UX 11.23 while the client OS is HP-UX 11.31.

Would like to know is it error because of diferent OS version?

 

Anyhelp will be very much appreciated.

Can you please copy/paste the exact command syntax you're issuing and the exact messages you're seeing?

Hi Dave,

 

Thanks for your reply. Please find the requested details:

 

The command I am using is as follows:

share -F nfs -o rw=/windb/batchlogfiles

error: running old NFS library, requires new NFS library.

 

When I am trying the "/usr/sbin/share" command I am also getting same error on NFS server but not getting that error on client NFS.

This command is only valid on 11.31 for NFS.

Right.  The correct 11.23 command is exportfs(1m)

Re: NFS Error: Running old NFS library, requires new NFS library

Hi Dennis,

 

Thanks for your reply.

When I am using exportfs command getting error:

 

OS= HP-UX 11.23

exportfs -v /windb/batchlogfiles

exportfs error: can't open /etc/exports; No such file or directory.

 

But it has /etc/dfs/dfstab fs, i don't know how it came for 11.23 when it is for 11.31? Making an entry in dfstab didn't workout.

 

Regards

Syed

Re: NFS Error: Running old NFS library, requires new NFS library

Hi Everyone,

 

created a file in /etc/exports and put the entry of /windb/batchlogfiles there.

After that did exportfs -v /windb/batchlogfiles

exported /windb/batchlogfiles.

 

Now when trying to mount on client

mount -F nfs IP_Address:/windb/batchlogfiles

geting error

either IP_Address:/windb/batchlgfiles ignored or entry not found in /etc/fstab.

 

Can anyone help what to do to mount it on client?

 

Regards

Syed

Re: NFS Error: Running old NFS library, requires new NFS library

Hi Everyone,

 

Issue resolved.

Summary of activity what i did for others reference.

 If nfs server is HP-UX 11.23 create /etc/exports and make an entry in that.

 

put entry in /etc/dfs/dfstab.

start the services on both client and server.

do: exportfs -v directory path

 

Dennis thanks for your response regarding the exportfs use in 11.23.

 

Thanks everyone for their support.
