Export Netware Volumes via NFS

I am trying to export a complete netware volume per NFS which does not work. Directories get exported properly. The share is visible thru showmount -e servername but you cannot mount it. TCSH returns a permission denied which is not the case on exported directories. Settings are identical.

Environment:

Netware 4.11 unpatched (for some reasons)
NFS 2.1 with NFSPAT 2.12 (Patch NFS202.EXE)
Solaris 2.5.1 Unix Client


Thanx for advice, Ralf

I've never been able to export an entire volume.  Seems to me that it may not be possible due to the limitations of NFS for Netware.

However,  both systems (Unix and Netware) must be set up in tandem.  Eg, the Unix system (or other NFS server) must be set to accomodate the NFS directories.  Be also sure that long filename services are loaded on the Netware box, else anything improted to it from the Unix side would be truncated to the 8.3 format.

See: http://netlab1.usu.edu/novell.faq/nov-nfs.doc  for some more info on the subject.
