Mounting NFS volumes from a Solaris server on a Linux Client with root access

If you are having trouble mounting nfs volumes on a Solaris 10/11 server from a linux client, here is the secret voodo chant:

solarishost# sharemgr set -P nfs -S sys -p “rw=linux_hostname,root=linux_hostname” servers

This presumes you have defined the group ’servers’. If not, use:

sharemgr create -P nfs servers

and add your shares to it:

sharemgr add-share -s /path/to/share -d “Your Description” servers

Simple, eh? :-P
