AIX nfs subsystem unable to run

hi i'm running AIX 5.1 ML 4

The problem is ...

i tried to activate nfs

To start the nfs group, i type

# startsrc -g nfs

nfsd, biod,rpc.statd,rpc.lockd showing ALL STARTED WITH PROCESS ID.

but then when i type to check status #lssrc -g nfs

showing that only nfsd,biod that are running ...

but subsystems below are failed to run (inoperative status)


 rpc.statd                              inoperative
 rpc.lockd                              inoperative
 rpc.mountd                          inoperative

There is no error message coming out. so i have no idea why the subsystems were stopped.

Any guru can tell what's the problem and how to make rpc.statd,rpc.lockd,rpc.mountd able to be running.


Thank you very much.

Is portmap running? Use "lssrc -s portmap" to see.

Type rpcinfo -p
if you get nfsd and mountd running your NFS is functional. Try mount from some other system.

solution found.

This is because the server A that required to mount server B is running 64 bit and Server B is running 32 bit.

After downgrade server A from 64bit  to 32bit. It successful running.


Thank you very much.

i.e "inoperative" AIX server allows Linux, 32/64 AIX clients, FreeBSD clients and wvwn SFU clients.

Those are on-demand started by inetd. "inoperable" display is because inetd was not restarted. Then again one installs 2-bit system rebooting 10 times and says it is completely different.

lockd/statd do not cause problems unless multiple users co-edit same files or you have weak network links.
