Issue with changing the permissions on an nfs mount

Hi All,

I have an nfs share which I mounted to my linux machine as below.
df -k output
                      47185920  11663072  35522848  25% /opt/rn_jira

I have no entry for this in my /etc/fstab. I did it by the following way.
mount -t nfs TSDapp-na-02:/vol/tsd_app_1/rn_jira /opt/rn_jira

And I had copied some files from another local folder using rsync.

But now when I try the rsync again to the already existing files in the share, I am getting errors as below
chown: changing ownership of `jira-home': Operation not permitted.

So I did ls -l and the following is what I see in the directory.
drwxrwxrwx   7 nfsnobody nfsnobody    4096 May 30 21:49 jira-home

How can I fix this? Please help in solving this. This is some what urgent.Smilie

Is the user of the directory mounted [TSDapp-na-02:/vol/tsd_app_1/rn_jira] directory is in NIS with which the copy is happening?

if so no issue, if not provide required permissions to that filesystem and try to complete the task Smilie
