Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

We have a shared drive mounted on our Linux machine using NFSv4. But we are not able to write anything to the drives. Creation of files fail with the below error but once you cancel and exit we see the file created. Again if we try to edit and modify the file, the same error occures and the file is NOT updated. What could be the reasons for this error? A few screen captures below:
/appdata is the mount point which is shared and has write issues.

There is enough space available in the disk (about 50GB free). Also permissions are good too with rw for the user/group 'mqm'.
Will be happy to provide more details if required. Please help with your valuable suggestions and advices.
