Changing permssions on a NFS share file

I have used ndmpcopy to copy a file to an nfs share on my system. (8.1.4 7mode) 

 

But i cannot read the file from the server with NFS mount.

 

The permissions on my source file are 600. 

 

 

I cannot find any information on how to change this to 644 so i can copy the file. 

 

 

Can anyone point me in the correct direction?

Mount your exported directory on any Unix/Linux system and use standard "chmod" command.

I couldn't actually get this to work. Despite my nfs export being set to root for my host. 

 

Similar for changing the perms using SMB.

 

I guess ndmp is doing somthing odd to the file perms. 

 

 

 

Anyway. I eventaully got the files to copy to my destination filer once i realised that ndmpcopy doesn't use the password i expected.
