Cant find NFS shares on Linux server

Unread postby rikjoh » Sat Jul 15, 2006 7:24 am

I managed to install 6.5.15 from scratch on a INDY.
(Saving the networked install for later)

"server" has /mnt/hda, /mnt/hdc and /home/Mp3 exported to the network.
I want to mount them under /NFS/server/hda and so on.

But as i now try to set "indy" up for networking and such, it cant find the NFS shares exported from my Linux server.
I enter the ip adress for the serve, and hit update, but it never finds anything at all.

If i mount the shares manually it works perfectly.

Also if i add the entries in fstab to automount at boot, it works perfectly.
How come the "autodetect" fails?

Also, fixing a entry in fstab makes it permanent.
The setup said something about "session only" mounting.
What and where do i add to manage that?
(home share unmounted at logout for instance)

this should answer all.
anyhow mounting is nearly the same on any unix version.

Have you looked into your /etc/exports file on your Linux server? I use a opensuse PPC server to provide NFS shares to my O2, and I had the same problem. Instead of using the IP address of the client host (I assume you are just serving the one workstation, the Indy), I used an alternate name (in this case, its FQDN). It successfully detected and mounted the share. You could try that.

I use the NFS server for several Linux and few WinXP boxes.
my /etc/exportfs is as follows:
(This is on a locked not routed LAN

/mnt/hda/ *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)
/mnt/hdc/ *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)
/home/Mp3 *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)

I know i probably ought to tidy it up.
But as for now it works.. (Aside from the autodetection from IRIX.

Ill take a look later this week to see if the FQDN would work better.

you mean you never tried to mount it by hand?

Graphic NFS is IRIX only

Unread postby SAQ » Wed Jul 19, 2006 10:50 am

At least on IRIX 6.2 the graphical NFS mounter seems to only interoperate with IRIX hosts. Command line mounting works just fine, though.
I haven't tried graphical mounting from 6.5 - I suppose I should - I just got in the habit of CLI mounting from my 6.2 box.

NFS shares from OpenBSD are visible through the graphical mounter in "Filesystem Manager".
OpenBSD serves it over udp - might it be a reason ?

Linux servers are not visible (but still mountable manual way)
I wonder if the nfs service need to be advertised somehow trough inetd perhaps.

You are responding to a post from 2006..?
and none of your assertions or (rhetorical?) questions make sense to me.

Oh, and who cares about GUIs?

The only platform I've ever had problems with NFS is Solaris where you have to specify a version number of the protocol to use as an option "-o vers=3".
But then I've only been using NFS for about 15 years and UNIX since 1988.

Yes I'm replaying to 2006 post any reason why not ?- This forum is like a knowledge bank for me and others .
its not a face book man ;)

I was looking for answers here .. just added my bit for interest of others. tested the whole thing few times -
And in fact the gui tool cant list the shares from linux and it list nicely the ones served from Open/free/net/BSDs/Solaris
I'm looking for a reason currently
I was trying to solve that issue myself recently..
I do care about gui.. any reason I shouldn't ?

I can see you are one of these console heroes not caring about gui :) and you never had problems with NFS :).
I also never had any problems with NFS and I use terminals since early childhood ;) not a problem here at all.

But I like my gui tools to work fine or at least know why they don't its an SGI man -- oh and don't be such a HaKzord "But then I've only been using NFS for about 15 years and UNIX since 1988"
So what ? me to - and many others here even longer.
And now go and watch some movie on your VT100 ;)

-regards

This is a good "fyi" tip, if/when I need to change my nfs server I will look into this, for now I've set it up to be working automatic on boot and I don't have time to mess with it. 8-)

SGI hasn't fixed since 2006 so this post is just as valid today as it was back then. and ME would like the gui. :mrgreen:

PymbleSoftware: Sweet jesus! don't get so upset..

I just had a little daughter in December myself and I work hard every day I know how bad it gets with taxes an other shit I did't mean to hurt you..
Just joking man just joking .. Relax, have cold beer (I would get you a cold pint of a Guinness if I could ) all is going to be good. Nobody can't take the knowledge from you and if we help each other to learn new stuff here and in other places we can only get better right ?
Wiki on Nekochan is great I learned a lot from it. And every little forum post helps. Irix is frozen it will never change again so it doesn't matter its 2006 post.
I would never laugh at your experience - but you seems to be bit stressed & tense its good to joke then right ?
--peace
