NFS mount of RS/6000 fs fails

NFS mount of RS/6000 fs fails

Post by Joachim Schnitt » Fri, 15 Oct 1993 00:14:56



We  have a couple of  Linux (0.99pl9 and 0.99pl13)  boxes and some NFS
servers on both  our local Ethernet  segment and other segments of the
university's LAN.

It is  possible to remotely  mount file systems  on the Linux machines
from the  SGI boxes  (IRIX 4.0.5) on   the local segment.  It  is even
possible - but incredibly slow - to mount file systems from overseas.

But it seems to be impossible to get  stable mounts of RS/6000 AIX 3.2
file systems  both  on the local  segment and   other segments  of the
LAN. Most of the time mounts hang with

        NFS server not responding. Still trying.

If mounting  succeeds (very seldom) then  NFS to  those machines often
hangs. With Irix there is no problem at all.

Has anyone else ever encountered this problem?  I have heard if mounts
failing due to  high network traffic, but why  can I mount the SGI box
in the next room and not the RS/6000 next to it?

I would be pleased if anyone could help me.

-Joachim

AIX <-> Linux NFS

Sorry about the german answer but I tried to send it with mail:

In comp.os.linux.admin you write:

NFS Linux <-> AIX

Hallo Joachim,
ich glaube ich habe vor laengerer Zeit mal genau die gleiche Frage gelesen
und ich meine Die Antwort hatte etwas mit den Options zu tun, wie AIX
das Verzeichnis exportiert. Soweit ich mit erinnere musste man
die Securityoption heruntersetzen.

Hoffe das hilft, wenn nicht, bitte die Loesung :*) Ich habe genau das gleiche
vor.

Gruss

 Thilo
