NFS between hp-ux 11.31 and hp-ux 11.23

Hi gurus,

 

I am using smh on 11.31 to try to connect to a directory on an hp-ux 11.23 box. NFS server client is disabledon 11.31 box and somehow cannot be enabled. Only NFS server is enabled. nfsconf has NFS_CLIENT=1 so I am not sure why it doesn't get enabled.

 

Any idea how I can set NFS on 11.31 to access directories on a 11.23 box?

 

Thanks in advance

What do you mean "NFS client cannot be enabled"? What error do you get when you attempt to mount the NFS filesystem from the command line?

Without the NFS client processes running on the 11.31 server, you will not be able to get to much via NFS.

 

What happens if you do the following on the 11.31 server::

 

# /sbin/init.d/nfs.core start

 

# /sbin/init.d/nfs.client start

This is what I get and still cannot enable NFS CLIENT using smh networking services

 

 

 /sbin/init.d/nfs.core start
    Starting NFS CORE networking

        rpcbind already started, using pid: 1234
# /sbin/init.d/nfs.client start
    Starting NFS CLIENT subsystem

    Starting up nfs4cbd daemon
        nfs4cbd already started, using pid: 1331
      Starting up nfsmapid daemon

Looks correct to me.  What are you expecting to see?  And again, what happens when you attempt to manually mount an NFS filesystem?

Sorry could you tutorial me through the manual mounting.

mount <server>:/<filesystem> /<local dir>

For example, if NFS server "bobo" is sharing directory "/tmp" and I want to mount this directory to my local directory "/bobo_tmp" then the syntax would be:

# mount bobo:/tmp /bobo_tmp

This assumes the NFS server is configured properly, is sharing the filesystem properly, the client is allowed to access the filesystem, etc. All the usual caveats for using NFS.

You can also refer to the mount_nfs(1M) man page as well as the NFS Installing and Administering guide.

Will do as instructed in the morning and keep you informed. Lost my VPN connection. Thanks for the patience.

Do you have any nfs entries in /etc/fstab?  Are you running the automounter?
