Operating Systems AIX NFS mount from windows NAS with NFS server, have hidden folder on UNIX Post 303046106 by collectordk on Friday 24th of April 2020 01:08:12 AM

User mapping is not in use.

Mount is on a AIX 5.3 platform, NFS Server for unix is running on windows server 20212.
Default settings on NFS share + root access and "." hidden folder enabled.

Since all groups and users work fine on AIX, i do not need mapping since windows is "silent" here, and should not touch files. And since most files show and only random files appear hidden, together with random folders, i do not understand why. and if a rename from "MYFILE" to ".MYFILE" suddenly shows file on AIX with "ls -la" and then i rename it back and it is once again hidden, it is really strange.

i see now, i put question in wrong section Smilie Should probably be in AIX section.
