Can't nfs mount aix dir on linux client!


I'm trying to mount an exported aix filesystem on my linux machine. I use smit to export the fs and then try to mount the fs on the linux machine with:
mount <aix_server>:<exported_dir> /<linux mountpoint>

and get...
mount: <aix_server>:/i01/oracle failed, reason given by server: unknown nfs status
return value: -1

Any ideas?!

Could be different versions of nfs (2 vs. 3). I think you can force AIX to export with one protocol or the other.
