Question Permission denied on client when running install script residing on NFS server

Have a SLES8 box running NFS server. RH8 NFS clients running on HP blades. No cdrom drives, so figure I'll put my install source out on NFS server.

Copied my Netbackup cd to the SLES box and exported the directory to * hosts with RO permissions.

Mounted the exported directory on my RH client, ran ./install get "permission denied".

Ran the install locally on the SLES box from that directory and install was successful.

Is there an ACL somewhere besides the file permissions and the nfs permissions?

If the mounted NFS directory is RO, you cant execute (./install)

Unmount, chmod 777 then remount and try it. Also don't mount RO.

If that doesn't do it, you may have to do a manual install from the CD or a Boot floppy and choose NFS install from that point. Sometimes it isn't posible to perform an install from a local or mounted directory. This is the case with SuSE. I'm not familiar with redhat (anymore)

Here is why( most likely )

Apparently from this thread, if you specify "user" in the options for the mount, it assumes "noexec" is desired, too. This keeps you from executing files from the nfs mount.
