Mounting problems on Linux Advanced server

Hi All,

I have some directories shared on one of my Solaris boxes using the following commands in dfstab file

/usr/sbin/share -F nfs -o rw -d "Firsts" /dir1
/usr/sbin/share -F nfs -o rw -d "Second" /dir2
/usr/sbin/share -F nfs -o log,rw -d "third" /dir3
/usr/sbin/share -F nfs -o rw -d "fourth" /dir4

I am trying to mount these directories on to my linux box using following commands in my fstab file on linux

sol:/dir1   /net/sol/dir1       nfs     tcp,retrans=20,async,nfsvers=3 0 0
sol:/dir2   /net/sol/dir2       nfs     tcp,retrans=20,async,nfsvers=3 0 0
sol:/dir3   /net/sol/dir3       nfs     tcp,retrans=20,async,nfsvers=3 0 0
sol:/dir4   /net/sol/dir4       nfs     tcp,retrans=20,async,nfsvers=3 0 0

Now, funny thing is that all the mounts are successful other the for dir3. permissions on all the directories on my solaris machine are same. I get the following error

mount: sol:/dir3 failed, reason given by server: Permission denied

what is going on here?


Thanks
Ajay

PS :
1. On solaris box i do not have admin rights. I can just give poiters to my IT dept. To me it "log,rw" seems suspecious.
2. These directories can be successfully mounte on all ther boxes like - HP, solaris, AIX.

will this be the problem on 'log', what if you use /usr/sbin/share -F nfs -o rw -d "third" /dir3 in your solaris, and see whether the mount have the problem or not, if no problem than it's something abt the 'log'.

As I have written :

Even I suspect it could be problem with "log" but also - I AM able to mount the directries over other machine.

So the real question is :

how linux differs in  this regard with other systems??

so if remove the 'log' can it be working? just to ensure, if remove the log still not working than there will be another issue.

Why I am able to mount these directories on other machines?? like HP, solaris/AIX?????

That's why I'm thinking may not be the problem of 'log', need to clarify.

Since HP/AIX/Solaris similar to linux should not have such issue

I don't think it is the presence of the "log" option, per se, that's the problem. I set up a test share on a Solaris 8 and a Solaris 9 system like:

share -F nfs -o log,rw /nfs0/testit

and mounted it on an RHEL 3.0 WS workstation with:

mount -o tcp,retrans=20,async,nfsvers=3 sol-server:/nfs0/testit /mnt/nfs

I don't see anything in the Solaris man pages for share_nfs or nfslogd that indicate that including the "log" option would cause a problem. The only thing that occurs to me that might be an issue, even though the man page for nfslogd indicates otherwise, would be if the Solaris server can't do a reverse lookup on the IP of the Linux box.

It could have been a possiblity.. but then how I am able to mount other shares from the same solaris box??
