mount solaris NFS share in RHEL 4


Hi all,


I need a help in mounting a nfs share available in a solaris box(devprod15) , to a linux box(devprod) which is on RHEL 4. Whenever i try to mount, it shows some error that the solaris host is down.

Code:
[root@devprod ~]# mount -t nfs devprod15:newshare01  /new/myshare
mount to NFS server 'devprod15' failed: server is down.
when I try to view the available , NFS shares on the server
Code:
[root@devprod ~]#showmount -a devprod15
mount clntudp_create: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Authentication error
I think this helps to find the problem . From the client side , both portmap and nfs are enabled.
Code:
[root@devprod ~]# rpcinfo -p
   program vers proto   port
    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper

    100005    3   udp    700  mountd
    100005    3   tcp    703  mountd
Do solaris and linux use different ports for NFS communication ? I need help to clear this. What am missing ?

Thanks

What about from the server side? Is the server up? Are NFS and portmap running?

There might be an NFS version difference. Try -t nfs4 on the client, or setting NFS_SERVER_VERSMAX to 3 in /etc/default/nfs on the server and restarting its nfs server.
