vmount: Operation not permitted - AIX mount a remote Solaris directory

Mounting a remote Directory on Solaris/Linux to a AIX machine

Solution for mount problems facing on AIX?
Facing Errors like below?

Have you ever tried mounting a shared folder existing on Solaris or Linux machine to a AIX machine ? While doing so most of us will see the below kind of error. So to solve this problem the solution is this post.

bash-3.00#  mount pmgxs2v1:/dbarchive /dbarchive
mount: 1831-008 giving up on:
vmount: Operation not permitted.

bash-3.00# nfso -o nfs_use_reserved_ports=1
Setting nfs_use_reserved_ports to 1
bash-3.00#  mount -n pmgxs2v1 /dbarchive /dbarchive
bash-3.00# cd /dbarchive/
bash-3.00# ls
apache          builds          java            oracle          os              stax            unzipper
browsers        instance        lost+found      oracle-bundles  staf            stax-tnpm

Solaris by default requires any NFS mount to use a so called reserved port below 1024 and AIX 4.3 or above does by default use ports above 1024. 
We can use the nfso command to restrict AIX to the reserved port range as follows:
nfso -o nfs_use_reserved_ports=1

How to change IP in Solaris machine?
To Change the IP on Solaris we requires edit two files:

1. /etc/hosts
2. /etc/inet/ipnodes

If you are changing network address, you will need to change the router address in the file:
1. /etc/defaultrouter

Changing the hostname now only requires editing these files:

1. /etc/hosts
2. /etc/nodename
3. /etc/hostname.

is the driver name followed by the instance number of the interface. ie. hme0, bge0, ce0, qfe0

You can find all your network interfaces by drivername and instance# by running the following command: prtconf -D | grep network

Note: the following hosts files are no longer used in solaris 10.

Rebooting the computer should bring up the new ip and hostname.
