Mount same nas on homeserve01 or he2unx171 and then change the ownership.
On appserv02 server,
# mkdir /tmp/xyz
# mount aignas2:/vol/aignas512/appserv2 /tmp/xyz
# cd /tmp/xyz
# ls -ld weblogic
drwxr--r--   2 100325   webgp    4096 Jun 21  2010 weblogic
# chown -R weblogic:webgp weblogic
drwxr--r-- 2 weblogic webgp 4096 Jun 21  2010 /home/weblogic
Now, login to the client machine and verify.
[root@aigunx225 ~]# ls -ld /home/weblogic
drwxr--r-- 2 weblogic webgp 4096 Jun 21  2010 /home/weblogic
[root@aigunx225 ~]#
