Thanks to those who replied. A list of respondents and the
original question follows. Most of you pointed me at the
/etc/nsswitch.conf file, and the /etc/hosts table. I ensured
that these files were the same for all 3 machines, and I
also made sure that the results of 'niscat hosts.org_dir'
were consistent as well. I did notice that one machine
did not have a defaultdomain file, so I added it.
Sometime during my debugging, things began to work. I cannot
tell if it was an NIS+ update that brought things to life
or perhaps the defaultdomain file(?). I now have a consistent
lookup scheme, which is the essential ingredient.
Thanks in specific to these people:
I am setting up a small development network, using NFS
among other things. I have made a directory remotely
accessible via dfstab and share as follows:
share -F nfs -o rw:betty:wilma -d "Home directories" /export/home
- /export/home rw=betty:wilma "Home directories"
Now the problem is that betty can mount the drive fine, but wilma
gets the infamous "Permission denied". If I change the dfstab entry
share -F nfs -o rw:betty:wilma.foo.com -d "Home directories"
it works. I have been trying to determine the differences between
betty and wilma, and can't find the problem. betty is running
2.5.1 and wilma is running 2.5. I looked for a patches to no
avail, and I think it must be in my configuration somewhere. Why
does one system need the fully qualified name and the other
Suggestions appreciated, summary will follow.
