Trouble with read/write permissions mounting Ubuntu 10.04 Server on Solaris 7 client

I have two servers: Server1 running Solaris 7 and Server2 running Ubuntu 10.04 Server. I need to move files from Server1 to Server2 before I update the OS on Server1. I want Server 2 to be the mount server and Server1 to be the mount client.

On Server2, I have /etc/exports with the line


On Server1, I type as root

mount /Folder2

When I type (as root) 'cp test /Folder2' on Server1, I get the error

cp: cannot create test: Permission denied

I umount \Folder2 and type

mount -o rw /Folder2

thinking that it would give me read and write permissions. I type (as root) 'cp test /Folder2' on Server1. This time I get no error message, but the file test is not in the folder Server1:Folder2 or in the folder Server2:Folder1.

I have read online about Solaris having user id issues, but I don't even know what that means.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a better way to do this or an easier way?

export with no_root_squash. by default NFS exports map root to the anonymous (no power) uid.
