Setting up NFS, Host Entries?

» close window

The Question is:

We are novice OpenVMS users here and we are trying to determine how to mount a
 disk from a remote UNIX system (Sun). We can ping the system, but when we
 issue the mount command we get the following:
TCPIP> mount dnfs30: "" "" /host=odo /path="/disk30/home"
%TCPIP$DNFSMOUNT-E-MOUNTFAIL, error mounting _DNFS30:[000000]
-SYSTEM-F-NOSUCHNODE, remote node is unknown
TCPIP> ping odo
PING ODO ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=254 time=0 ms
Any guidance on what we have not setup correctly would be appreciated, this
 worked at one time but then a network move occured and ip addresses changed.

The Answer is :

  Please see the NFS documentation in the TCP/IP Services manuals for
  information on configuring IP and particularly NFS.
  If this host is registered in the local hosts database, use the
  TCPIP command SET NOHOST to remove it, then re-add it with the
  correct IP address.  Please also ensure you have the correct case
  for the specification, "odo" and "ODO" -- SET [NO]HOST can be used
  to add both cases for the particular host, as synonyms.
