HP-UX 10.01 and Solaris 2.5 NFS Mounts
Posted on 1998-05-13
A Solaris 2.5 box is serving as the main NFS server. One of the directories that is currently being shared from this box is /test/data1. I have an HP-UX 10.0 box that has two files that need to be mounted by other machines on the network. The files live in /test/data1/data2 on the HP-UX box. (The files have to be resident on the HP-UX box for COTS utilization). I created the exports file and exported it with no errors on the HP. However, I cannot mount it from any other machine on the network. I receive an error about "RPC Program Not Registered" on the HP-UX box. However, the inetd.conf file looks fine. I have a document that says,
"You cannot export a directory that resides within the same file system and is either a parent or s sub-directory of a directory that is currently exports. For example, /usr and /usr/local cannot both be exported if they reside on the same disk partition."
Does this statement apply to this situation? The /test/data1 directory is being exported by the Sun machine, but /test/data1/data2 directory is being exported by the HP.
Thanks for any suggestions.
