# mount -F nfs -o intr,rsize=1024,wsize=1024 sheridan.nai-sys.com:/c /mnt
nfs mount: sheridan.nai-sys.com:/c server not responding: RPC:
        ...Authentication error; why = Invalid client credential

nfs mount: sheridan.nai-sys.com:/c server not responding: RPC:
        ...Authentication error; why = Invalid client credential
nfs mount: sheridan.nai-sys.com:/c server not responding: RPC:
        ...Authentication error; why = Invalid client credential

This is what I get when I try to mount a volume exported by SOSS, a
freeware NFS server for DOS PCs (NFS v2 according to its docs).  The
ultimate object here is to export Netware drives so I can make use of the
Wabi 2.0 I just got in the mail.  Without access to Netware services, Wabi
is as useless as*on a boar hog.

SunOS 4.1.3 has no trouble at all mounting volumes exported by SOSS, and
neither does Linux.  A Solaris 2.3 SPARC 2 gives the same errors as 2.4
x86.

'snoop udp' shows this stuff going on:

What the hell?  How do I correct this?

It could be due to the server failing to do a reverse lookup ( ip address
to hostname a la gethostbyaddr ) Is the client in the hosts file ( or equiv
alent ?  Are the hosts specified in the exports file (or its equivalent )
consistent with those in the hosts file (or its equivalent on you PC setup) ?

The solaris FAQ says:

5.9) I get ``Invalid client credential'' when mounting filesystem on
    Solaris client from non-Sun fileserver.

    Some vendors still ship a version of RPC/NFS that allows at
    most 8 groups in the client credentials.  Root on Solaris is by
    default in 10 groups.  As a result, the Solaris 2.x mount
    command will send AUTH_UNIX credentials that are too big to
    cope with for the remote mount daemon resulting in the ``Invalid
    client credential'' error.

    Workaround: put root and all your users in 8 or less groups.
    NOTE: You must logout and login again for changes in the number
    of groups to take effect. (or exit root's shell and re-su)

That did the trick!  Thanks!

BUT (you knew there was a "but" coming right?) -

I am getting strange behavior after having mounted the exported Netware
volumes.  Files I create won't show up unless I umount and mount again.
Files I delete cause 'ls' to give errors like "./filename.ext: No such
file or directory".  The same Netware volume mounted on SunOS 4.1.3 or
Linux does not exhibit this behavior.  Files are created and deleted
normally.

Example:

# pwd
/netware/f
# ls -l
total 20
drwxrwxrwx   2 root     root        1024 Jan 30  1995 awhost
-rwxrwxrwx   1 root     root       18526 Sep 30  1993 subst.exe
# mv subst.exe foo.exe
# ls -l
./subst.exe: No such file or directory
total 1
drwxrwxrwx   2 root     root        1024 Jan 30  1995 awhost
# ls -l foo.exe
-rwxrwxrwx   1 root     root       18526 Sep 30  1993 foo.exe
# cp foo.exe subst.exe
# ls -l
total 1
drwxrwxrwx   2 root     root        1024 Jan 30  1995 awhost
-rwxrwxrwx   1 root     other      18526 Jan 30  1995 subst.exe

If at this point I umount /netware/f and then mount it again, foo.exe
shows up in the 'ls' listing.  I have tried using the noac option in the
mount command, but it didn't help.

This behavior doesn't occur under SunOS or Linux, and it doesn't occur on
the root directory of the PC hard drive that runs SOSS, but it happens in
subdirs on the hard drive.

Any ideas about this one?

1. Solaris 2.4 x86 volume mgmt

Hi. I am having a problem with a Solaris 2.4 x86 pc. The machine
has an  IDE drive which it boots from, and on which the / filesystem
is. It also has a 4.3GB SCSI drive, which is attached to an Adaptec
SCSI controller (indicated as supported in the hardware compat. list).
The SCSI disk is on `controller 1' at target zero:  c1t0d0s*; the IDE
drive is at c0d0s*. There is also a Sony SCSI CD-ROM drive attached
to the SCSI controller, at SCSI id 6: c1t6d0s*. All the appropriate
devices exist in /dev/dsk and /dev/rdsk.

The problem is that volume mgmt does not work properly on the CD-ROM
drive after the first time a CD is changed. It seems that accessing
floppies under volume mgmt works fine multiple times, so long as a CD
is never used. However, after a CD is mounted and then ejected,
neither floppies nor CD's can again be used. That is, when media are
inserted in either case, and volcheck is run, it just hangs.
In addition, a cd to /vol and pwd results in  the shell this is
done from hanging.

It is also no longer possible to use the mount command to mount media
after volume mgmt breaks in this way. That is, issuing a mount
command to mount a  CD as root user using all the right syntax
results in the mount command just hanging too. In this case, it
is not even possible to kill such a mount process.

Furthermore, the /usr/sbin/vold process cannot be stopped using
/etc/init.d/volmgt stop; the process continues to run. Also, trying
to kill the /usr/sbin/vold process does not succeed either. The only
way to get rid of these processes is to reboot.

Has anyone come across this kind of problem? Or can you give me some
clues as to what is going on? Thanks. I also note that when volume
mgmt is hung in this way, I get some messages when running shutdown
that the vold process is not responding to some system calls (surprise).

Thanks for any help. Please e-mail me directly.

Chris Nicol.
