while mounting Vfiler on AIX client getting follwing error :

#mount -t nfs [vfiler path] /mount point

"mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting"
 Error: mount: 1831-011

incident analysis :

NetApp filer
  :From storage side check whether AIX client has access to Vfiler.

Observation: From NetApp filer side AIX client didn't Vfiler access .

Action done to solve issue:
Add AIX client to Vfiler access list.

#mount -t nfs [vfiler path] /mount point

IT works !!!!!!

other checks for vfiler troubleshoot:

  • check required ports are open at filer side and confirm that firewall is not blocking communication between vfiler and AIX client.
  • check whether mount point is not busy at AIX client side.
