I am nfs mounting a solaris partition from a Linux box.
In solaris, the share is configured thus:
root=myLinux / rw=myLinux ""
when the solaris knows of course myLinux in /etc/hosts.
from the myLinux machine it is mounted on /mnt/solaris thus:
mount |grep /mnt/solaris
ipOfSolaris:/ on /mnt/solaris type nfs (rw,soft,addr=ipOfSolaris)
when I try , from the linux machine ,from the gnome-terminal, to copy
a file from solaris to linux with cp command - it is ok.
However,when I try the same with mc I get:
"cannot chown target file...operation not permitted" when copying
from nfs shared partition"
NOTE: It does not seem to me a problem of file permissions - because for this
test I changed all to 777.
is something missing in the nfs share maybe?
from man share_nfs (solaris):
Only root users from the hosts
specified in access_list have
root access. See access_list
below. By default, no host has
root access, so root users are
mapped to an anonymous user ID
(see the anon=uid option
described above). Netgroups can
be used if the file system
shared is using UNIX authentica-
tion ( AUTH_SYS).
