NFS mount error

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

When nfs mounting from a Linux NFS server, customer gets the following
error:



vmount: operation not permitted

Symptom

Unable to mount the remote filesystem.


Cause

Sometimes Linux NFS servers will do port checking and require that the NFS client use a reserved port.

Environment

AIX versions 4.x and 5.x.

Resolving the problem

Here is an example using a reserved port mount option.

root@lpar3:/ # mount 10.5.0.5:/repository /mnt
mount: 1831-008 giving up on:
10.5.0.5:/repository
vmount: Operation not permitted.



root@lpar3:/ # nfso -o nfs_use_reserved_ports=1
Setting nfs_use_reserved_ports to 1
root@lpar3:/ # mount 10.5.0.5:/repository /mnt

To make this setting permanent use the nfso '-p' switch or add it to /etc/rc.local.
