Trashcan on NFS mounted home directories - Mac Applications & Software

We are running 10.2.6 with NIS authenication and home directories NFS mounted from a Solaris server. We have a strnge problem that the trashcan does not work on the NFS mounted file system. In the home directory dragging to trash fails completely with an error and in other directories we get a warning that the deletion will occur immediately and not put the item in the trash can. Does anyone know what is going on or where I could read up on how the trash can should be working in this environment?...

    Default Trashcan on NFS mounted home directories

    We are running 10.2.6 with NIS authenication and home directories NFS
    mounted
    from a Solaris server.

    We have a strnge problem that the trashcan does not work on the NFS mounted
    file system. In the home directory dragging to trash fails completely
    with an
    error and in other directories we get a warning that the deletion will occur
    immediately and not put the item in the trash can.

    Does anyone know what is going on or where I could read up on how the
    trash can
    should be working in this environment?

    Remote trash cans do not work in OS X. It doesn't matter whether it's
    NFS, SMB, or AFP.

    It DOES work.

    At least I’ve had trashcan working on my NFS share.

    Unfortunately it’s just STOPPED working (which is why I found this page via a web search). It stopped working when I migrated to a new NFS server, & not sure what’s different…
