Linux NFS Server, AIX NFS Client 31 July 2008Posted by Maulvi Bakar in : Linux,Unix,Work , trackback
We have a Linux NFS machine to extend the AIX Server’s chronic acute harddisk space shortage syndrome. Somehow, AIX Client could not mount the shared NFS folder from the Linux Server.
Apparently, AIX uses high ports to establish the connectivity to NFS Server. Linux NFS Server requires low ports (below 1024). So, you have to force AIX to use those reserved ports to establish the connection.
nfso -o nfs_use_reserved_ports=1
Then, the normal ‘mount’ should work from AIX after the medicine 😛
