Description haynal 1999-05-05 04:21:14 UTC
We recently upgraded to RedHat 6.0. We have a Dell PowerEdge 2300 Server with dual 400 MHz PIIs. With RedHat 5.2 we had no problems serving NFS to the Solaris 2.5.1 and other Linux machines in our lab. Now, none of the Solaris machines will mount the Linux-served NFS partitions. This error appears: NFS server not responding, nfs mount: <our linux machine>: NFS service not responding nfs mount: retrying: /usr1 Furthermore, the other linux machines are able to mount one of the NFS partitions as read-opnly. When they mount the second NFS partitions, they get an additional copy of the first partition as read only! These results are with the stock precompiled i686 smp 2.2.5-15smp kernel distributed by RedHat. The same problem occurs if I recompile the kernel.

To use NFS to mount a file system from a Red Hat 6.0 linux server onto a solaris client, you will need to add the option "vers=2" to the solaris mount command. Dunno about the inherited ro on linux yet ... ------- Email Received From Steve Haynal <firstname.lastname@example.org> 05/06/99 01:02 -------

*** Bug 3535 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** When I export a filesystem to a SUN system, the SUN system cannot see it. Gives this error: nfs mount: aerialist: NFS service not responding nfs mount: retrying: /mnt Also, after doing so, I can't unmount the file system that I was attempting to export. I have to shut down the nfs server and restart it before I can umount. Strange.I suspect you problem is the same as #2554. If not please reopen. You might also try knfsd-1.4-1 from Raw Hide which no longer advertises NFSv3 support.
