IBM AS/400 NFS Server Configuration?

» close window

The Question is:

Hello, we are currently trying to mount a drive from our AS400 to our Vax. On
 the Vax via UCX Iv'e got our device mapped as pathname = /dvpt and the logical
 file system as $1$DIA4. I've got an export defined as file system=/dvpt/don
 and the host=swf01 whi
ch is the 400. ON the 400 we use this command MOUNT TYPE(*NFS) MFS('/don')
MNTOVRDIR('/Pinta'). "Don" is the directory on the VAX, "Pinta" is the
 library(dir) on the 400.
Where getting object not fount and security errors. We don't know if we have
 Vax issues(UCX) or AS400 issue. Any help will be appreciated.

The Answer is :

  You are having problems with the remote system configuration; with
  the IBM AS/400 series or the AlphaServer 400 series or the AlphaStation
  400 series -- based on the command syntax shown, the remote system
  appears to be an IBM AS/400), as the configuration of the remote system
  IP servers and IP setup is almost the usual cause of object not found
  errors and of security errors.
  Most any NFS server system generally requires the configuration of a
  map of remote client users to the associated local user value and of
  the devices that should be exported; both an EXPORT mechanism and a
  map providing the configuration of user proxies.  Many systems also
  require that the NFS server be configured and started.  Please contact
  an IBM AS400 Wizard for assistance in configuring the NFS Server
  settings and the NFS proxy access settings.
  The $1$DIA4 name is very similar to an OpenVMS disk name for a DSSI
  disk device, and would not be the choice of the OpenVMS Wizard.
  Within OpenVMS, the TCP/IP Services settings -- please make sure you
  are running V4.2 with ECO and please consider an OpenVMS VAX upgrade
  to OpenVMS V7.3 and to TCP/IP Services V5.3 with ECO (current, as of
  this writing) -- are detailed in the TCP/IP NFS documentation, for
  both the NFS client and the NFS server.  This documentation is
  available at the OpenVMS documentation website; please see the FAQ.
