I am having problems with an nfs mount from aix 3.2 to solaris 2.5.1 that was working before but is doing strange things now.

I am migrating data from an aix machine to a solaris machine. I created a dfstab entry on the solaris machine:

share -F nfs -o root=machine_name_was_here /lv3
share -F nfs -o root=another_machine_name_was_here /lv3

i mount the solaris directory on /mnt1. the solaris machine does not recognize the aix user as root. if i make a world writable directory it creates files as:

drwxr-xrwx   2 root     254          512 Apr 11 12:17 ./
-rw-r--r--   1 42949672944294967294      0 Apr 11 12:17 test1

on the sun machine it shows as:

drwxr-xrwx   2 root     systems      512 Apr 11 12:17 ./
-rw-r--r--   1 nobody   nobody         0 Apr 11 12:17 test1

neither machine has a user or group of 4294967294

this process works fine on another aix machine i have and i swear this was working last week.

i've tried rebooting both machines.

any ideas?

check /etc/exports on AIX and make sure that no_root_squash is set.  For security reasons, root is mapped to nobody by default.
