NFS Issues - %TCPIP-E-NFS_BFSCAL, operation MOUNT_POINT failed on file

I'm currently experiencing issues on NFS between VMS and HPUX

On my VMS node I want to export the VMS dir dsa2:[FREDTEST] and be able to mount to this from a unix node.

server1 is a hpux machine 11.23
vmsnode1 is a vms machine running VMS Version V8.3-1H1 (TCPIP V5.6-9ECO3)

The root id on server1 is 0,3

The VMS directory security is as follows:

dsa2:[000000]/sec

Directory DSA2:[000000]

000000.DIR;1 1/64 12-FEB-2009 12:07:51.42 [SYSTEM] (RWE,RWE,RWE,E)
FREDTEST.DIR;1 1/64 25-MAR-2009 11:44:40.33 [SYSADMIN,FRED] (RWED,RWED,RWED,RWED)



See below commands and info
============================

tcpip show service NFS

Service Port Proto Process Address State

NFS 2049 UDP TCPIP$NFS 0.0.0.0 Enabled

TCPIP ADD PROXY FRED /UID=0 /GID=3 /HOST=server1
TCPIP MAP "/vmsdisk" DSA2:
TCPIP ADD EXPORT "/vmsdisk/fredtest" /HOST=server1 /options=NAME_CONVERSION

tcpip show proxy

VMS User_name Type User_ID Group_ID Host_name

FRED OND 0 3 SERVER1

tcpip show map

Dynamic Filesystem Map
Pathname Logical File System

/vmsdisk DSA2:

tcpip show export

File System Host name

/vmsdisk/fredtest SERVER1
Options: Name_cvt

When I issue the below mount command from hpux I get the following error

mount -o soft ukvms2.spicers.europe:/DSA2 /ukvms2tape
Permission denied

On VMS I see the following VMS Error

%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 25-MAR-2009 11:58:00.54 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user TCPIP$NFS on VMSNODE2
%TCPIP-E-NFS_BFSCAL, operation MOUNT_POINT failed on file /DSA2

I'm really struggling with this,
Have I missed anything obvious?
Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

Re: NFS Issues - %TCPIP-E-NFS_BFSCAL, operation MOUNT_POINT failed on file

The only obvious thing I see:
mount -o soft ukvms2.spicers.europe:/DSA2 /ukvms2tape

Shouldn't it be:
mount -o soft ukvms2.spicers.europe:/vmsdisk/fredtest /ukvms2tape
?

Thanks Joseph, I had typed the information incorrectly, however you were correct in that my mount command was incorrect from hpux.

I used

mount -o soft server1:/vmsdisk/fredtest /ukvms2tape

and all worked fine.

A nice easy 10 points :)

Thanks Joseph
