And AIX client is trying to NFS a SUSE Linux export.
When trying to mount, it gets the error:
vmount: operation not permitted
LAN traces show that the mount request is actually
succeeding. However, it is immediately followed up a 'Get
FileSystem Info" call (procedure 19), which is failing with status
1, aka "not owner," aka "NFS3ERR_PERM". This normally
means that the requester does not have permission to make the
request. However, permissions are 777 and the AIX client is
requesting as root, and has root access (no_root_squash).
AIX by default will allow and use high port numbers for NFS
communication. Some systems, including Linux, reject
this. Configure AIX to use the reserved ports for NFS
communication with the following command:
nfso -p -o nfs_use_reserved_ports=1
This will take effect immediately, and also be written to the
AIX system's permanent configuration.
