HP-UX nfs problem

Posted on 2011-10-06

Last Modified: 2013-12-06
Hii all,
I have 2 HP-UX servers. Server1 is HP-UX 11.11.  Server2 is new HP-UX 11.31.
On Server2, I enter SAM and share a local filesystem /d01.
On Server1, I enter SAM and mount Server2 remote filesystem as /rd01
However, on server1 I only can read the /rd01. When I try to create directory, it shows Read-only file system.
May I know how to configure it correctly so that /rd01 can be full access?

Check your HP box you make your you have setup the export permissions correctly
(check /etc/exports file), to make sure you allow root access from the NFS client.

man exports

if only root has this problem, add 'no_root_squash' to the options of the export. If any user has problem, then you're likely to be either exporting or mounting the system read-only, so you need to check both export and mount options.

Finally I found the problem was due to missing /etc/nsswitch.conf in the nfs server
After manually create this file, the access problem is solved.
