cd to nfs mounted dir outputs permission denied
 
For some reason, i get permission denied when trying to cd to an nfs mounted dir as me. Even if i try to cd out of the dir, i get permission denied. When I do the cd, i am able to do an ls of the contents. What can I check?

This is on SUSE10. This is running on a NIS env and some users get the perm denied error and some users don't. I checked perm of the dirs and they are fine.

/etc/sysconfig/autofs?
/etc/init.d/autofs?
/etc/auto.master?

/dev/2 doesn't even exist....

Tried google and the forums, but hard to find or search for the correct issue.

x86-test:~> cd /home/elmo/bin
/dev/2: Permission denied.
x86-test:~/bin> cd
/dev/2: Permission denied.
x86-test:~>

If you have read permission (r) on a directory, you can ls the contents. To cd into a directory, you need execute (x) permission.
