Almost everyone point me to add rw in there, I really did before. It
does not fix the problem.

Got a right answer:
If you are using DNS, NIS or NIS+ check using the FQDN in the share:


                share -F nfs -o /data1

Try login to the sparc4 and execute the command "who" to see how the
resolves the name of sparc4.

Also pay attention if the ultra2 has more than one IP address, which one
ussing to connect to the server ?

But I don't know why? In nsswitch.conf
I have:
hosts files dns

should look my hosts file first!?

Any one have an idea?
