Operating Systems AIX NFS mount from windows NAS with NFS server, have hidden folder on UNIX Post 303046134 by MadeInGermany on Saturday 25th of April 2020 03:08:03 AM

I am not an AIX expert, but NFS is a standard - I guess IBM even licenced it from SUN.
The NFS version is "negotiated" once, at mount time. The client simply asks the server via rpcinfo what versions are available and picks the highest version that it supports itself.
A test command:
rpcinfo servername

The client stores the version in the mount values, and sticks to it. You can view the mount values, at least some of them with the mount or mount -v (verbose) command.

In this case I suspect a problem or odd behavior on the NFS server.

nfsmount.conf - Configuration file for NFS mounts SYNOPSIS
Configuration file for NFS mounts that allows options to be set globally, per server or per mount point. DESCRIPTION
The configuration file is made up of multiple sections followed by variables associated with that section. A section is defined by a string enclosed by [ and ] branches. Variables are assignment statements that assign values to particular variables using the = operator, as in Proto=Tcp. Sections are broken up into three basic categories: Global options, Server options and Mount Point options. [ NFSMount_Global_Options ] - This statically named section defines all of the global mount options that can be applied to every NFS mount. [ Server "Server_Name" ] - This section defines all the mount options that should be used on mounts to a particular NFS server. The "Server_Name" strings needs to be surrounded by '"' and be an exact match of the server name used in the mount command. [ MountPoint "Mount_Point" ] - This section defines all the mount options that should be used on a particular mount point. The "Mount_Point" string needs to be surrounded by '"' and be an exact match of the mount point used in the mount command. EXAMPLES
These are some example lines of how sections and variables are defined in the configuration file. [ NFSMount_Global_Options ] Proto=Tcp The TCP protocol will be used on every NFS mount. [ Server "" ] rsize=32k wsize=32k A 33k (32768 bytes) block size will be used as the read and write size on all mounts to the '' server. [ MountPoint "/export/home" ] Background=True All mounts to the '/export/home' export will be performed in the background (i.e. done asynchronously). FILES
