Linux mount VMS share

I tried to mount a VMS share on a Linux server, but failed:

( on Linux server: linuxhostA )
# mount vmshostA:/ora_disk/ora_rep /repout
mount: RPC: Authentication error; why = Invalid client credential

But I can see the share with:

# showmount -e vmshostA
Export list for vmshostA:
/ora_disk/ora_rep linuxhostA

# rpcinfo -p vmshostA
program vers proto port
100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
100000 2 udp 111 portmapper
100003 2 udp 2049 nfs
100005 1 udp 10 mountd

Any suggestion for me?
Thanks!

Re: Linux mount VMS share

Hi,

As the error says, there is probably an authentication error. Please see the manual entries abbout managing NFS on VMS and granting access to users:
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/732final/6526/6526pro_contents_005.html#toc_chapter_22

Maybe you need to setup access with a default user. See this paragraph in the same book:

http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/732final/6526/6526pro_045.html#nobody_sec

Re: Linux mount VMS share

Hi,

1) which Linux ? Be sure to specify nfs v2 or v3 on your Linux client (no V4)

2) is the export on an ODS5 disk ?

In that case specify the .dir extension in the
export and mount command :
On the NFS server:

TCPIP> ADD EXPORT "/dka200/h_so.dir"/HOST=NFSCLIENT

On the NFS client:

TCPIP> MOUNT dnfs100:/host=alpha1/path="/dka200/h_so.dir"

( see TCPIP 5.4 Release notes section 5.12.1 )

Hth,
