    Issue to access NFS share which is shared on HP NAS box

    Currently I am using HP NAS box and we have installed “HP Storage Works storage Mirroring” on NAS for Replication. Windows 2008 is installed on this NAS box. I have shared a directory as NFS share on this NAS box and allow anonymous read and write access to all machines. I want to mount and access this NFS share directory on one LINUX machine and this Linux machine has Redhat 5.3 Enterprise edition.

    1. The issue I am facing here is, I can mount the NFS share on my Linux machine successfully but I can not do read/write on this NFS share. Whenever I try to access this mounted NFS share, I always get error “Permission denied”. I can’t do any read/write operation on this mount point. Please provide the inputs to resolve this issue.
    2. How do I mount NFS share with user credential and password? Can I share a directory as NFS share with user credential which I can use when I mount the share?
    3. Is there any other way to access NFS share by using user authentication and password?

    NFS does not have user-level authorization; only host-based authorization. A share can be read-only or read-write. The permissions assigned by the client can limit, but not add to, the capabilities of individual users.

    Stuff happens. Then stays happened.
