NFS issue HP Unix 11iv3 FS Shared from HP UX to Linux

[ Edited ]

Hi Experts,

 

I am trying to share the FS from HP Unix 11i v3 host to Linux host, FS is getting perfectly shared, but on linux node on the shared fs, I am not able to create an file or folder.

 

folloing entry in dfstab:
share -F nfs -o rw=Linuxhost /sapmnt/QE2/profile

Problem on Linux host:
Linuxhost:root:/sapmnt/QE2/profile # touch abcd
touch: cannot touch `abcd': Read-only file system

Any idea what could be the soultion, i tried even with the user & root but same issue

 

 

P.S. This thread has been moevd from HP-UX > System Administration to HP-UX > networking - Hp Forum moderator

If the HP-UX server is not allowing write access but it is allowing the client to mount the filesystem then this sounds like a hostname resolution issue.  In other words, the HP-UX server is not matching the client to the name "Linuxhost".  You can try using the fully-qualified domain name of the client or even the IP address of the client in the rw= list to see if it helps.

I tried by adding fully qualified doman also, but same issue is persistent. File System Mounts a Read only on Linux Host.

Are you as root?  If so, you have exported it as root is less than dirt, nobody.

Have you tried sharing the filesystem using the IP address of the client instead of the hostname?

No, you are "less than dirt", nobody, unless you add root= to your share command.

 

>even I tried with the user, which owns the directory

 

Now that should work, if you are using the same IDs.
