Description jphartmann 2006-06-22 17:30:20 UTC
The zVM NFS server returns RPCAUTH_NULL in the mount reply, at least when
it is configured to support anonymous.  This is turned into EAUTH in xdr_fh().
Which in turn causes the mount to fail with 

FreeBSD# mount_nfs -T -3 -R 1 cphart:sfs /sfs
[tcp] cphart:sfs: Authentication error

It would have been a great help if mount_nfs had issued a message indicating
the server authorisation it did not like.  The message indicates that the
server rejected the mount, but to my surprise the server had as many mounts
as I had tried.

That said, configuring that particular level of NFS server is also quite
challenging :-)

How-To-Repeat: You need a zVM system clearly, and they are not easy to come by.
vm.marist.edu is one, but chances are slim that they are NFS exporting
anything to the outside world.
