What do you mean by "as my mounting" Is it a symlink for /pkg->/afs/gv/GV2/@sys ?
Could you use /afs/gv/GV2/sun4x_510 as you know what type system you are on.

Or are you trying to use the AFS/NFS translator?

What does fs sysname show? It should show

Current sysname is 'sun4x_510'

@sys works for us in sun4x_510.
