mountd: MOUNT request from: <host> denied: Permission denied (HP-UX 11.31)

mountd: MOUNT request from: <host> denied: Permission denied (HP-UX 11.31)

I am just migrating my application from aging kit running HP-UX 11.11 to Itanium rx2660s running HP-UX 11.31.

I have some old NEC NC900 X-Terminals which boot off and are 'connected' to some of the rx2660s. This worked fine with the old 11.11 machines, but I'm now getting a number of the follwing errors in syslog:

 

<nfs_server> mountd[3841]: MOUNT request from: <nfs_client> denied: Permission denied

 

Here's my dfstab:

 

share -F nfs -o rw -d "NCD OCX boot directory" /opt/ncd/tekxp/boot

share -F nfs -o rw -d "NCD OCX fonts directory" /usr/lib/X11

share -F nfs -o rw -d "NCD OCX fonts directory" /usr/dt/config/xfonts

/usr/sbin/share -F nfs -o rw -d "" /opt/cgs

/usr/sbin/share -F nfs -o ro -d "" /bhf

/usr/sbin/share -F nfs -o rw -d "" /home/b110

/usr/sbin/share -F nfs -o rw -d "" /trend

 

I must say, the syslog message isn't as helpful as it could be - it doesn't even say the mount to which share failed.

 

As I say, it's the NCD shares that I'm concerned about at the moment (although I believe I've got other NFS issues as well, but I don't want to muddy the water by discussing them here, but I suspect if I can fix one it will fix the other as well).

 

I'd be grateful of any help.

 

Many thanks,

 

Gary

Gary,

 

If theres no insight in /var/nfs/mountd.log, my suggestion is to kill mountd and rerun it with "-t2". 

 

kill `ps -ef | grep rpc.mountd | grep -v grep | cut -c10-15`

 /usr/sbin/rpc.mountd -t2

 

And then check /var/nfs/mountd.log and see if additional information helps.
