NFS permission mounted but cant edit existing files

Hi - This is a Netapp storage NFS export.
Client is Oracle ent linux ? version not sure

Anyway the server is an Oracle enterprise VM. It has all the mount permissions to the NFS volume export on the Netapp. It mounts. The linux user can write to all of the folders from the mount point in ALL of the sub-folders. However can not get to edit "existing" files or run a dos2unix command (the create tmp file fails) - all get permission denied.

The UNIX  user and GROUP IDs match with the netapp and the unix server. Checked and confirmed with passwd file on netapp.

more detail here : Im stumped - PLEASE HELP

the appldevl unix user is unable to create a temporary file when running the dos2unix command.

The error log looks like:

 Input datafile is readable and larger than 0 bytes

Calling datafile conversion process

dos2unix: converting file /naoradev/Finance/Chris21/GLL2404.TXT.unix to UNIX format ...

Failed to open output temp file: Permission denied

dos2unix: problems converting file /naoradev/Finance/Chris21/GLL2404.TXT.unix

ERROR during datafile conversion process - Tue May 6 14:01:54 WST 2014
