Mount from linux to AIX - AIX

Hello, I try to do a network mount from LINUX SuSE 8.2 (xSeries) to a AIX 4.3.3 NFS server but the mount command needs up to 30 minutes to complete. We can issue the mount command and the shell hangs, the mount process could not be killed. Somehow after a very long time (up to 30 minutes) the mount succeeded, the mount process finished and the mounted filesystem could be used without problems. Any suggestions?

    Default Mount from linux to AIX

    Hello,

    I try to do a network mount from LINUX SuSE 8.2 (xSeries) to a AIX 4.3.3
    NFS server but the mount command needs up to 30 minutes to complete.

    We can issue the mount command and the shell hangs, the mount process
    could not be killed. Somehow after a very long time (up to 30 minutes)
    the mount succeeded, the mount process finished and the mounted
    filesystem could be used without problems.

    Any suggestions?

    I do not know if this will apply to NFS but I have seen other network
    services (telnet, ftp) become very sluggish if the server (in your
    case the AIX) cannot resolve the name or address (reverse lookup) on
    the clients. A timeout is eventually triggered and it works. Add the
    linux box hostname + IP in your hosts file to see if that helps.

    Try the option "insecure" on the NFS Server (Linuxbox)

    - Give Ethereal or tcpdump a shot
    - Try forcing NFSv2
    - Check portmapper and all RPC communication is working properly
    - Ask Lars Bebensee :)
