Mounting a HPUX directory on Linux and filesystem permissions

Posted on 2011-10-03

Recently I was tasked to export nfs a directory on our HPUX server and mount this on Redhat Linux.  My question is I get many issues with permissions even though I do chmod 777 on the mounted filesystem, and can not do a chown either without getting a permission denied error.

    look at the nfs server side, not where you mount it on the client.

    What are the permissions specified in the exports file?
