Problem with NFS server W2008 and client HP-UX 11.23


I have a problem: "RPC: Authentication error" with NFS. The server is cluster Windows 2008R2 (NAS) and the client is HP-UX 11.23.

First I created all users/groups on the Windows DA whit "Microsoft Identity Management for UNIX" with the files: passwd, group and shadow.

Next I created a new folder for NFS without anonymous priv.

Next in HP-UX I can mount the folder:
mount -F nfs /Prueba
But when I make ls, cd ...
NFS access failed for server RPC: Authentication error
/Prueba unreadable

Shalom Jamie,

There are a number of issues with NFS and windows. Best bet is to get the latest NFS patches from HP for HP-UX, install the patch set, sit through the system boot and try the connectivity test again.

What version of the Windows NFS connectivity/Unix suite are installed on the server box.
