Re: HPUX 11.31 root cannot touch directory.

You have mounted a directory from another server.
At this server root from your server has no permissions!
You have to give permissions at hostc (normally in /etc/exports).

Re: HPUX 11.31 root cannot touch directory.

Thanks.

 

BTW: how to permamenty delete this share?

server is rebootet one month ago, /etc/auto.direct is dated before this time, 27 Apr.

Hi,

check in /etc/fstab for mount point and execute command umount -f

Thanks

Re: HPUX 11.31 root cannot touch directory.

there are no entries about /u03 in /etc/fstab..

 

but... 

#mount
/u03 on /etc/auto.direct ignore,direct,dev=4000003 on Wed Jun 1 05:57:42 2011

Re: HPUX 11.31 root cannot touch directory.

It's mounted on /etc/auto.direct so it's from an automouter configuration ....
Maybe in an init directory (/sbin/rc1.d or rc2.d, ...)

Re: HPUX 11.31 root cannot touch directory.

Found it (at least in 11.11):
set "AUTOMOUNT=0" in /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf

Do you really want to turn the automounter off completely or just the one filesystem?

Unless you have exported the filesystem with root=, the default is root is "less than dirt".
