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

Whoever writes Inappropriate/Vulgar comments to context, generally want to be anonymous …So I hope U r not the one like that?
For lazy logs, u can at least use Name/URL option which doesn’t even require any sign-in, The good thing is that it can accept your lovely nick name also and the URL is not mandatory too.
Thanks for your patience
