Problem using NFS on 11.31

I've got 6 hpux 11.31 logical volumes shared via NFS to an 11.23 machine, but now when trying to share a 7th, I'm getting a message on the client machine saying "mount: /oraexp: No such file or directory." The command I ran on the client side that gave me this message was "mount -F nfs servername:/oraexp /oraexp"

Not sure what to check from this point. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your responses.

Re: Problem using NFS on 11.31

Does the /oraexp directory exist on your client server?

Re: Problem using NFS on 11.31

Can you post exportfs -v from the server ?
Nothing is impossible

Yes, here's the bdf from the server:

As this is a 500GB mount point, could that be the cause of this issue?

Re: Problem using NFS on 11.31

What about the 11.23 client? Does the /oraexp directory exist there? The directory must exist on the client so there is something to mount to.

That got it. I hadn't specified the local directory. I knew it was something stupid on my part. Thanks for your help.
