Is NFS possible on two HP-UX servers with the same hostname

I tried many times but unable to do NFS mount. I add ip address into /etc/dfs/dfstab and run exportfs -av on host A, then I tried to mount the NFS from host B. The tricky part here is both Host A and Host B have the same hostname, both server are running HP-UX 11.31.

Two servers with same hostname?

This will produce a lot of other trouble.

Why did you do this???

Hope this helps!

Re: Is NFS possible on two HP-UX servers with the same hostname

One of them is to clone another for testing, /etc/hosts has been modified so that they don't talk to each other, but because we need to share some folder via NFS, there is why I am here, I keep getting the following error, I have updated dfstab to use ip address but still getting the same error.

# mount 10.84.1.1:/conversion /conversion
nfs mount: 10.84.1.1:/conversion: Permission denied

It works fine by using aliase in dfstab. On NFS client side, we mount from ip address.
