NFS mounts not working in AIX 5.3 getting permission denied from RHEL


I'm trying to mount Redhat Enterprise linux 4 directories in AIX 5.3 using NFS mount.

1. In Red hat Enterprise Linux /etc/exports looks like below
/dir_mount *(ro,sync)
exported properly using the command exportfs -ra

2. In AIX mount is happening properly. /etc/auto_master looks like

/test /etc/automount_dir/auto.test

3. In automount_dir contain auto.test file. This file contains

test1 -ro,hard,vers=3,intr,tcp
(ip is masked)

4. After mounting, i went to directory /test. I can see 'test1' directory

5. But im not able to open the test1 directory the message i get is
"cd: test1: The file access permissions do not allow the specified action."

Please help on this

Thanking in advance

We had some issues with internal rcp connections on our Red Hat servers.
Found that we had to modify the /etc/xinetd.conf
if the only_from variable is set to a certain IP range then by default no other server will have permission to do anything.
Hope this helps.

We tried your suggestion. Below are the observations

1. There was no "only_from" entry in /etc/xinetd.conf. I added it in

2. Restarted xinetd daemon

3. Tried to mount on AIX

4. But still getting the same error.
