Unable to access NFS share on Solaris Server from Linux client

Hi,

I am trying to access a NFS shared directory on Solaris 10 Server from a client which is RHEL 4 Server.

On the NFS Server, in /etc/dfs/, I added following line to dfstab file.

Code:
 
share -F nfs -o rw /var/share

& then ran the following

Code:
 
svcadm -v enable -r network/nfs/server

On the client machine, while running the mount command, I am getting the following error.

Code:
 
mount -vt nfs 97.146.133.114:/var/share /nfs_test
mount: trying 97.146.133.114 prog 100003 vers 3 prot tcp port 2049
mount: trying 97.146.133.114 prog 100005 vers 3 prot udp port 32777
mount: 97.146.133.114:/var/share failed, reason given by server: Permission denied

97.146.133.114 is the NFS Server.

Please help me to resolve this issue.

Thanks,
Sunil

What happens when you set NFS_CLIENT_VERSMAX=3 in /etc/default/nfs and restart your NFS server?

I've experienced this problem in the past and remember having to fight it.

I recommend that you ease all security until you make is work and then tighten up afterwards. I can confirm that it can be made to work with RHEL.

1.
Start by opening up root access to the Solaris share:

Code:
 
share -F nfs -o rw,root=<RHEL nodename> /var/share

Put the RHEL nodename and its ip address in /etc/hosts

2.
Set the access rights on the Solaris share to 777.
For good measure also set 777 on its parent directory

Code:
 
chmod 777 /var/share
chmod 777 /var

3.
On RHEL try:-

mount <Solaris ip>:/var/share <mount point>

You may also need to try specifying nfs version 2,3 or 4 on the mount command. Try all three versions to test.

Post the results of that.

I think you'll agree that it's easier to troubleshoot from a working position than a non-working position. You can then re-tighten security until you break it.

Hope that helps.

Though I did not try your solution, I appreciate your effort in putting a detailed explaination.
