Re: NFS Mount

John,

What is your Tu65 and Solaris Version? because there are patches released specially for NFS issues on these OS's.

SO try to get the latest patch kit for Tru64 for whatever the version you have and apply all the NFS related patches. Probably they will fix your problem if you have configured your NFS withour any problems.
Also set the block size in solaris box to 8K or less.

Re: NFS Mount

Thanks for all the feed back. I'm still new to Tru64 environment. I know i've applied patch kit 5 on this server.

Manish,

# showmount -a
All mount points on localhost:
nyiqriln01.iqfinancial.com:/usr/users/dist
nyriskbk.iqfinancial.com:/dist
nyrisksos.iqfinancial.com:/mnt
nysisw0011.iqfinancial.com:/COMPMGR

Re: NFS Mount

John,

PK5 is okie....i am not really getting what exactly is your problem.

With PK5 on TRU64 you shouldnot face the problems with NFS Mount.

Thanks for elaborating your problem.

Re: NFS Mount

Manish,
The problem I am having is
When i do showmount -a on Tru64 box it shows i have a directory mounted from a server. eg server01:/dist. but when i do umount server01:/dist i get not currently mounted.
server01 is a Solaris 8 with the latest patches from SUN. I've shutdown the solaris 8 server and rebooted the Tru64 machine showmount still shows server01 with dist mounted. I don't have it hard coded in any place. I also try to mount that directory back on Solaris but it just hangs the Solaris box. All i want to do is to mount a Tru64 directory on to Solaris. thanks

Re: NFS Mount

Also what is the procedure you used for mounting.

First youneed to give the share command for the directory that you need to mount on Tru64 and after that mount from the TRU64.

Re: NFS Mount

Manish,
I'm not doing automount at startup. i'm just doing it on command line.
in /etc/exports i have line
/dist
from solaris i do
mount -o vers=2 tru64server:/dist

How do i restart nfs or mount daemon on True 64 w/o rebooting? in Solaris i just share a directory and shareall command. how do i do that in tru64? i want to test this on another Tru64 server but i can't reboot it to make the /etc/exports go into effect.

thanks
