Permission denied on resources that are exported to netgroups

Currently Being Moderated



My problem is following:

I created /etc/netgroup with entry

myhosts (ns,,) (db,,)


Then I export volume 'ports' to that netgroup by doing:

fas1> exportfs -io sec=sys,rw=@myhosts,root=@myhosts /vol/ports


When i try to mount i see permission denied:

ns% sudo mount fas1:/vol/ports /mnt/p
mount_nfs: can't access /vol/ports: Permission denied


I tried to google the solution, but ended with nothing.  I waited for 60 seconds after

editing /etc/netgroup, so that DataONTAP could reread it,  but it did not helped.


Filer can successfully ping both hosts and resolve their hostnames.  If during

export i specify ip addresses or hostnames I can successfully mount and

do IO on mounted volume, but not when i use netgroup.


This is FAS3020c running DOT 7.3.3.
