I am running MAC OS X v10.4.6 on a G5 PowerPC. I have an external drive attached to one of my usb ports. I used netinfo manager to export it. I run showmount -e and it shows up. But when I nfs mount it from another server (running solaris 8), the volume is there but it is empty. Any specific options need to be specified?
Some outputs of commands:
showmount -e jaws
Exports list on jaws:
/Volumes/LACIE Everyone
ls /Volumes/LACIE/
./ Backup Exec AOFO Store/
../ Recycled/
.DS_Store* System Volume Information/
.Trashes/ locus/
._.Trashes*
sudo mount -t nfs jaws:/Volumes/LACIE /mnt
mount_nfs: can't access /Volumes/LACIE: No such file or directory
ls /mnt

Hi cminder,
   Is the netgroup "Everyone" defined in the /etc/netgroup database? The system may recognize default netgroups of which I'm unaware but I saw no mention of it in the man pages I read.
   Was there a long pause after the mount command? "No such file or directory" or some variation of "not found" are kind of "catch all" error messages. If the pause was long enough, I would postulate that the connection timed out. In any case it's pretty hard to tell from that one message what is going wrong. Portmapper usually logs in your console.log, which can be read with the Console.app application in the /Applications/Utilities directory. Check the system.log as well. Do they say anything about your attempted mount? Of course it would make the entry easier to find if you repeated the attempt. Console.app updates nearly "real time".
   One last obvious question: can you ping jaws from the client? Can you refer to jaws in the same non-fully qualified notation that you used in your mount command? Is jaws listed in your /etc/hosts file?
