"Cannot access path" error when mounting an NCP share from OES11 SP1 using ncpmount.

When trying to mount an NCP share with the ncpmount command, the system prints out the following error:

Cannot access path "{volume-name}": Invalid argument

A network trace reveals a problem in the name space negotiation between the server and client. Even though the OES11 SP1 NCP server advertises the NFS namespace with the volume to be mounted, it returns error 191 (ERR_INVALID_NAMESPACE) when the NFS name space is used in requests for accessing the given volume.

ncpmount -S -A -o tcp,nonfs -V VOLC1 -U admin.novell /mnt
