Mounting NFS partitions on Solaris 10 from RHEL



RedHat 5 vs Solaris 10 -- still have problem

Hi there, I read your old note here and decided to try your trick. It worked for a few minutes then started to fail. Here's what I have:

1. A disk array is attached to a RedHat 5 server, let's call it cedric
-bash-3.2$ uname -a
Linux xxxxx.xxxxx.xxxx 2.6.18-92.1.26.el5 #1 SMP Wed Jun 24 10:41:56 CDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

2 It exports the disk array to a Solaris 10/SPARC server -- let's call it malecot. In /etc/exports, it shows:
/usr/local/xxx/xxx/ malecot(rw,root_squash,insecure)

3. On malecot:
malecot$ uname -a
SunOS malecot 5.10 Generic_142900-03 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V490 Solaris
and its /etc/vfstab reads:
cedric:/usr/local/xxx/xxx - /home5 nfs - yes vers=3

I also have /etc/default/nfs reads:

and a user dzhu is authenticated via nis:
malecot$ ypcat auto.home | grep dzhu
-rw,vers=3 cedric:/usr/local/xxx/xxx/dzhu

With the above setup, I have the following problem on malecot (Solaris 10 side):

cd /home/dzhu
mkdir tmp
cd tmp
tar zxvf ../act.tgz
tar: Act/Multic/Demo: Cannot mkdir: Not a directory
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
cd /home/dzhu
rm -rf tmp
rm: cannot remove directory 'tmp/Act': Not a directory

Please, can somebody help?!

Thanks a bunch!!
