VIOS mode is restricted and customized AIX environment. Even it has its own set of commands, you can not use all your AIX command in VIOS mode. Even you can't run smitty, mkdev and such common commands which we frequntly use on AIX.

While you give "oem_setup_env" the VIOS will give you normal AIX mode where you can run all your normal AIX command.

So for NSF mount, I think there might be different command or may be the option not available in VIOS mode.
