Thanks Dan! We do know the permission problem. We tried chown but got "Not a
owner" error. That is because of "root squashing" in which root becomes
"nobody" when you cd to NFS directory.
To overcome this we tried adding "no_root_squash" to export file. but
still the error.
I will overcome this somehow.....but my Biggest worry now is - can I
configure Mysql to use SAN location? if not, why?
