I need to be able to mount an NFS file system on Solaris 10 using the equivalent of the nolock mount option. From what I can see this mount option is not available on Solaris (looks like its a Linux mount option).
There is an llock mount option but I can not find any doc whether this performs the same function as the nolock option on Linux.

The Solaris option llock is the one you want. It means 'local locks'. So the nfs client does use locks, but it's self-contained and doesn't impact other clients.
