When I try to write a file to an NFS (amd) mount I get a permission

Reading works, of course.
The error sequence is -
I save the file
I get the error message
I quickly do an ls -l and the file size looks fine
I do another ls and the file is 0 bytes.
The nfs server is an auspex, running a variant of solaris I think.
Hmm, I think a fix for something along these lines (i.e. files
being truncated etc) was committed in FreeBSD, you might wanna
read their CVS logs. If I get time in this week, I will look
Also, could you try TCP as a protocol and try nfsv3.
