nfs a file shares ok via file mngr but not command line. Suse 9.1


I STF for permission to no avail.


This seems Suse specific (I ONLY experience it on Suse) since I don't ever have the problem with either Slackware 10 or Fedora Core 1

I can mount a Suse folder on Fedora and I do not have the problem.

But the problem happens when, on Suse, I've mounted a Fedora folder.

I can mount the folder ok using the command line. Once mounted I have all the access that I need to the nfs shared folder via the graphical file manager. (can copy the file and then burn it to cd) (but I need to burn it to cd from across the network)

(I do cli burn cd across the network with exception of this problematic Suse)

But I've a Perl script I (as the su or root) use to burn cd disks. Here's the problem: Suse reports "permission denied" if I cli change directory to the nfs shared folder.

Never happens the other mentioned distros. p.s. always su to root then mount via commandline.

I can only assume that Suse does something different as far as network permissions go via the commandline than what the other distros do.

Anybody no what to modify or what to do to let me do on Suse what I do on Fedora and Slack?

Possibly this Suse has a corrupt file which make this happen ie may not be "Suse specific"?

what? if i get you right: you can't use the mounted nfs as root (or a you root with your filemanager?).
check /etc/exports for no_root_squash

please post more clear if i did'nt get you :-|

user with file manager worked. cli as root did not work, not allowed.

>check /etc/exports for no_root_squash

I waas unaware of that option. it wasn't in the exports file. but I added it which make root access via the cli work.

/folder2share *.localdomain(ro,no_root_squash)

strange that some distros allow root access without that option in the exports file.

stf keywords: nfs permissions exports /etc/exports nfs root access permission cli nfs permission
