Strange ownership and group privileges on mount

Hello,

I mounted between 2 HP-UX, B.11.11 machines as follow:

# mount :/scc

When running "ls -l " it shows strange ownership and group privileges for both sides.

Example:

drwxr-xr-x 2 110 cd-write 1024 Feb 12...

These ownership (110 or some other 3 digits No.) and group (cd-write) does not appear when running "ls -l" directly on the machine itself.

In addition, it prevents files transferring between the machines.

Please advice,

Yali.

 

P.S.

You must synchronize your /etc/passwd and /etc/group files on all of your machines if you expect NFS to work nicely.

Perhaps by using NIS.

Re: Strange ownership and group on mount (NFS)

I synchronized between UIDs of the machines and also between GIDs and it seems fine.

Thanks!
