Problem with NFS mount from Solaris server to Mac OS X client

Recommended Posts

I'm having problems with the UID & GID 60001 on an NFS mounted share from a Solaris server to a Mac OS X client. Any files with the UID/GID of 60001 show up on the Mac OS X client as 4294967294. If i mount the same share on a Solaris client they show up just fine as 60001.

 

Export directory from Solaris 8 system: server:/testdir

NFS mount directrory on Max OS X (10.3.8) system: client:/nfs/server/testdir

 

Problem is that the UID or GID of 60001 shows up as 4294967294 on the NFS mount.

 

Folder listing on Solaris 8 NFS server:

root@server# ls -lan /testdir/

total 8

drwxr-xr-x 2 8055 24 512 10 Jun 17:20 testsubdir

 

The NFS share on the server was set up as:

root@server# share

- /testdir root=client.domain.com,rw=client.domain.com ""

 

The client mount was set up as:

client:/ root# mount_nfs server:/testdir /nfs/server/testdir/

 

Any ideas as to why this is happening or how i fix this?
