Data Permission Denied using VI on my NFS

Hi Friends,

I have problem using VI on my NFS as a user. But root does not.

When I tried to vi .cshrc, I have this error msg pops out

jennifer_hostname > vi .cshrc

"/var/tmp/Ex???? : Permission Denied"
jennifer_hostname >

Does any of you encounter this problem before or do you know how to resolve this problem?

drwxrwxrwt   2 root         4608 Aug  7 21:41 tmp/

Hope this Helps

Just verify whether you have read permission to .cshrc file.

Hi, Jayathirtha

Yes I have, in fact I chmod 777 for it

The method don't works.

On my NIS, the permission for /var is 555 and /tmp is 777 and I can use VI.
