Home directory issue on AIX 1 6  and aix 2 5
 Hi All,
We had an issue w/our 2node cluster(Redhat Linux5) and had to remove one of the node because of H/W issue so we disabled the cluster...As a result we reformated the gfs files to ext3. This filesystem is exported to all servers to be mounted as the user home directory using automount. The mountpoint name remained the same. We restore and basically rewrote the entire homedire.

All the other systems(Solaris,Linux,hpux) were able to mount the home dir either after a reboot or after restart nfs,autofs etc....AIX5 and 6 are the only nightmore still..none of the aix systems can mount homedir even after reboot and restart nfs..Its complaining the permission on homedir but the users can access the same homedir on other systems..See error below:
3004-614 Unable to change directory to "/home/user".
        You are in "/" instead.

Also pls see lssrc output below...I new to aix so please be detail..Thnx alot!
