I have a Solaris 2.6 box ( client ) and a Linux box ( Server ).  Basically the linux box has a couple of shares through NFS.  When i mount a share on the solaris box it mounts up fine but warns me "No Networking Locking", then it states the name of the server.  Which makes me suspect that its something to do with the way I have setup the linux box.  Linux is Suse 6.2  My exports file looks like :
/name of share (rw,no_root_squash,anonuid=504,anongid=101)  
Any ideas.. It sounds to me like its a expecting an extra facility of NFS.  I have searched and searched.  Any ideas ?

I suspect it's complaining about the Linux box's NFS implementation not supporting the NFS locking mechanism Solaris wants to use. Your export looks okay to me. I use "*(rw,no_root_squash)" on a Redhat 6.1 system and can mount the exported file system on Solaris 2.6, 7, and 8 without any problems. You might try mounting with "-o vers=2" (see "man mount_nfs") to see if using an older protocol might work better.

And of course it might also be a problem with the patch level of the 2.6 box. Is it up to date, at least with respect to the "Recommended Patches"?
