Problems with NFS mount from HP 9000, HP-UX 9.0

Hello there,

We are having some problems mounting disks from HP 9000 systems using NFS
under Linux. Note that this problem does not appear to be the result of the
root being a member of several groups on our Linux machines. They occured for
the first time after we upgraded our server from HP-UX 8.0 to HP-UX 9.0. We
have the following setup:

NFS-Server:
-----------

1) HP 9000/425 running HP-UX 9.0
2) Exports a local disk (/etc/exports):

    /disc/eriss/disc1   -access=...:wijnand:...

   The host "wijnand" is an alias for "wijnand.surf.phys.tue.nl".
3) rpc.mountd is started at boot time from /etc/netnfsrc.

NFS-Clients:
------------
1) PC running Linux from slackware-1.1.1 distribution.
2) The same PC running DOS and using PC-NFS.

When requesting a mount on the client running Linux the rpc.mountd makes
the following entries in the log file:

94.01.07 16:02:14  eriss.su  pid=811    ./rpc.mountd
     rpc.mountd started.
94.01.07 16:04:39  eriss.su  pid=812    ./rpc.mountd
     mount: mount request from wijnand.surf.phys.tue.nl, mounting /disc/eriss/disc1.
94.01.07 16:04:39  eriss.su  pid=812    ./rpc.mountd
     mount: mount request from wijnand.surf.phys.tue.nl denied: Permission denied

Killing rpc.mountd on the server and restarting it does not solve the problem:

94.01.12 09:15:55  eriss.su  pid=27887  /usr/etc/rpc.mountd
     rpc.mountd started.
94.01.12 09:17:24  eriss.su  pid=27888  /usr/etc/rpc.mountd
     mount: mount request from wijnand.surf.phys.tue.nl, mounting /disc/eriss/disc1.
94.01.12 09:17:25  eriss.su  pid=27888  /usr/etc/rpc.mountd
     mount: mount request from wijnand.surf.phys.tue.nl denied: Permission denied

When the PC is rebooted to DOS and the same mount request is given using
PC-NFS, the following entries are logged:

94.01.12 09:19:02  eriss.su  pid=27888  /usr/etc/rpc.mountd
     mount: mount request from wijnand.surf.phys.tue.nl, mounting /disc/eriss/disc1.
94.01.12 09:19:02  eriss.su  pid=27888  /usr/etc/rpc.mountd
     mount: mount request from wijnand.surf.phys.tue.nl denied: Permission denied

After some time the problem does not occur any more when using PC-NFS. As soon
as one tries to mount the disk from Linux again the problem occurs. However,
sometimes the disk can be mounted successfully, typically once every few days.

Does someone know the solution to this problem ?

Thanks in advance !

 
 
 

1. Xmodem on a HP 9000 712/60 running HP-UX 10.20

Hi Gang,

Does anyone know of a communications package using xmodem and/or
xmodem-1k that runs under a HP 9000 712/60 (HP-UX 10.20)?

Please let me know via e-mail if you do.  A free package including source
code would be best.

Thanks . . . :-)
