Exclamation Unable to mount NFS share present on server to client

Hi All

We have a server (svr01) which shares folder /viewstore and /vobstore through NFS. None of the client machines like wst37 , wst39 are able to mount the particular folders to the machine. They are in the same network.

wst37:root:/> mount svr01:/viewstore /viewstore
mount: 1831-011 access denied for svr01:/viewstore
mount: 1831-008 giving up on:
The file access permissions do not allow the specified action.

Steps I have taken for this issue :

1. Stopped NFS services at server (svr01)
2. Stopped NFS services at client (wst37)
3. Restarted NFS service at server & then on client.

svr01:root:/> cat /etc/exports
/viewstore -sec=sys:krb5p:krb5i:krb5:dh:none,rw
/vobstore -sec=sys:krb5p:krb5i:krb5:dh:none,rw

In client (wst37), entry for shared folders (/viewstore) & (/vobstore) was not there, so I added the below entries,

wst37:root:/> cat /etc/exports
/viewstore -anon=0,root=svr01,public
/vobstore -sec=sys:krb5p:krb5i:krb5:dh:none,rw

And restarted the NFS service. Still no luck. /etc/hosts files has entries of server IP on client and viceversa. They are able to ping each other.

FYI: I upgraded the ML of svr01 to 5.3.04 for Clearcase upgrade while the other servers have no ML or ML2 etc.

I have tried my best but, it is not fixed yet. This is very urgent request for the whole project here. Please advise!.

Hope the server is AIX.
U have to export the FS from the server first, and try to mount in the client.
