JSI Tip 2341. UNIX client receives 'Permission Denied' when mounting a shared folder?

When a UNIX client attempts to use the mount command, they receive a Permission Denied error message?

If you used the wrong case, SFU 2.0 returns a NFS3ERR_ACCES which the client displays as Permission Denied.

If SFUSERVER has a Public share,

mount -F nfs SFUSERVER:/public /mnt

would generate the Permission Denied error message, but

mount -F nfs SFUSERVER:/Public /mnt

would not, as it used the proper case.
