Hi all,

Looks like I've got to do some work today! Although I've gone and fallen 
at the first hurdle. A bit of code is trying to lock a file on an NFS 
mount, but is getting 'permission denied' this is running on a HPUX box, 
but the server is running Linux (2.4.10-7). The exports look like:

/data/disk0epos         *.wew.co.uk(rw,no_root_squash,insecure_locks)

(originally, it didn't have 'insecure_locks' but adding it didn't fix 
the problem) and is mounted on the HPUX box with:

Tain.wew.co.uk:/data/disk0epos /disk0/live/data/epos nfs rw,suid,hard 0 0

Tain.wew.co.uk:/var/lib/nfs/xtab looks like:
/data/disk0epos WEW.wew.co.uk 

Its nor the permissions bug in earlier RH nfs-utils rpm 

Anybody any ideas?
