On the NFS client system:

uname -a

On the NFS server system:

uname -a

"i can not" is not a useful problem
description. It does not say what you did.
It does not say what happened when you did
it. As usual, showing actual commands with
their actual output can be more helpful than
vague descriptions or interpretations.

Thank´s

Re: nfs client

Ok. So what did you do on the AIX system to
make the file system available? And what did
you do in the HP-UX system to try to use it?
And what happened then?

All still true.

>>First: i can not enable the nfs client in a hp-ux!!

What have you done to try enabling the NFS client?

General steps:
Modify /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf and change the line NFS_CLIENT=0 to NFS_CLIENT=1

Then run:

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

If you get any error messages, please post them here. It is rather difficult to help without seeing any error messages you may be getting.

What have you tried? What was the 'mount' command that you used? What error did you get?

Again, without specific error messages it is rather difficult to help.

Re: nfs client

What has changed since your previous NFS thread? Were you able to get that to work?
