Mounting NFS drives from a Linux server on a AIX ( 5.3) NFS Client

In my post about AIX-NFS-LINUX, I wrote about setting the automounter to
mount NFS shares from a linux server, but I forgot one important fact to mention.

Per Default AIX can not mount the share because AIX is using very high ports,
the only solution is to change the Linux side.

In the epxorts you have to add the option
insecure
This option has to be added to /etc/exports on the linux side.

A
exportsf -ar 
reexports the file systems after adding the insecure option.
