The Question is:

I am able to Mount a Linux NFS Server from my OpenVMS NFS client. But when I
 attempt to copy files to the mount point or delete files from the mount point
 I recieve an error that states:
-RMS-E-WLK, device currently write locked. My question is how can set
 permissions or correctly mount the NFS shares without a write locking error?
 Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard is unaware of any previous reports of WLK errors
  from the TCP/IP Services NFS client.
  The OpenVMS Wizard will assume that the volume has not been mounted
  /NOWRITE within OpenVMS NFS client.
  Details on configuring the NFS client are in the TCP/IP Services
  For assistance configuring an NFS server on Linux, please contact
  a Linux Wizard -- even assuming sufficient familiarity with Linux
  (not a safe assumption!), the OpenVMS Wizard is not in a position
  to assist with NFS server configuration, with GID/UID user mapping,
  nor with security or file protection settings on a Linux platform.
