Mount NFS Share in AIX 6.1
On some AIX 6.1 instances, you may run into problems when mounting an NFS from a Linux based machine. The root of the error lies in how AIX handles its NFS ports. You can configure AIX to use the standard NFS ports so that it can talk to the Linux box's NFS service.
Use the following code to setup AIX NFS options to use the proper ports for Linux NFS mounts:
nfso -o -p nfs_use_reserved_ports=1
Then just mount the share like you would normally. For example to mount the share temporarily, use this:
mount server:/path/to/share /mnt
That will mount the NFS share /path/to/share that is being served from a machine named "server" to your local filesystem at the directory /mnt.
