Tools ACL on the Solaris

we have two Solaris 10 servers with same configuration and settings. We have hard mounted the NFS with the version 4.
In one of the server the newer ACL commands are working fine (chmod and ls -v) whereas in another only posix (getfacl and setfacl alone is working) when we try ls -V in in that server. the error displays as invalid option. Please advise on how to enable to newer ACL format in that server

are you sure they are the same level patch level?

are they both using UFS or ZFS? or a mix?

If you attempt to set an NFSv4-style ACL on a UFS file, you see a message similar to the following:

chmod: ERROR: ACL type's are different
If you attempt to set a POSIX-style ACL on a ZFS file, you will see messages similar to the following:

# getfacl filea

File system doesn't support aclent_t style ACL's.
See acl(5) for more information on Solaris ACL support.

ls: invalid option -- 'V'
Try `ls --help' for more information.

This is what I am getting as error in one of the server, same is working fine in another one.

we did the same kind of hard mount in both the servers
moutn -F nfs -o vers=4 server:/path /path

are you sure they are on the same patch level?

have you tried to do a man on ls to see if -V is actually an option.

can you let me know how to check the patch level, uname -a shows the same results.

in one of the server
man ls
getcwd: I/O error

ls --help doesnt reveal anything related to ACL

and in another one, man ls is working and it shows the ACL options
