vmount: Not owner error on Linux NFS Export

While mounting NFS filesystem from AIX node named AIX_LPAR onto Linux NFS server Linux_NFS_server, got the error:

vmount: Not owner

root [AIX_LPAR] /tmp: mount Linux_NFS_Server:/local/home/app/media /mnt
mount: giving up on:
 Linux_NFS_Server:/local/home/app/media
vmount: Not owner

Solution:

Set parameter nfs_use_reserved_ports to 1 on client AIX_LPAR

root [AIX_LPAR] /tmp: nfso -o nfs_use_reserved_ports=1
Setting nfs_use_reserved_ports to 1
root [AIX_LPAR] /tmp: mount Linux_NFS_Server:/local/home/app/media /mnt

I hope it was useful!!!
Cheers

  1. instead of editing AIX nfs you can add insecure option to NFS exort something like
    on /etc/exports on linux server

    /local/home/app/media *(rw,sync,insecure)

    and export it with exportfs -va and try it out.
