nfs mount: mount: /sharepoint: Not owner

Posted by grigsby on July 5, 2007

When trying to mount a share from a Linux server (RHEL5) Solaris (10) issues this very useful message:

bash-3.00# mount server:/nfsshare /sharepoint
nfs mount: mount: /sharepoint: Not owner

This appears to be an issue with NFS v4 on Linux and Solaris 10. To fix this edit:


and change




Or of one time mounts simply add the following to the command line

mount -o vers=3 server:/nfsshare /sharepoint
