Having trouble setting up an NFS share server/client.

Hello All,

I'vve been tasked with setting up an NFS share between two local servers.

Commands I've run on Server :

SET HOST HOST11 /ADDRESS="172.19.0.XX"

MAP "/DKC0" DKC0:

ADD EXPORT "/DKC0/BACKUPS" /HOST=HOST11

ADD PROXY SYSTEM /HOST=HOST12 /UID=98 /GID=98

Commands I've run on Client:

SET HOST HOSTDR1-BACKUP/ADDRESS="172.19.0.XX"

ADD PROXY SYSTEM /HOST=HOSTDR1-BACKUP /UID=98 /GID=98

MOUNT DNFS1: /HOST=HOSTDR1-BACKUP /PATH="/DKC0/BACKUPS" /SYSTEM /USER=SYSTEM /UID=98 /GID=98

But, with that last command I get:

%TCPIP$DNFSMOUNT-E-MOUNTFAIL, error mounting _DNFS1:[000000]
-SYSTEM-F-NOPRIV, insufficient privilege or object protection violation

Any assistance as to what I'm missing would be great. I've tried a great deal of things up to this point.

For troubleshooting, issue a REPLY/ENABLE on the NFS Server before trying the MOUNT command from the NFS Client.

Ah, thank you for the tip.

The error I get on the server is "TCPIP-E-NFS_BFSCAL, operation MOUNT_POINT failed on file /DKC0/BACKUPS"

I'm currently working on this with that additional info, but any insight from the HP community would be fantastic.

Best regards!

Re: Having trouble setting up an NFS share server/client.

Incase anyone else comes across this, I was able to get the share going. For some reason, despite all documents using example like "/DKC0/Backups" as the mount path, "/DKC0" by itself was able to be mounted. I also made some changes after understanding NFS proxys better, but it was ultimately the path change that stuck.
