Description Glen A. Foster 2004-02-19 11:25:27 EST
Description of problem: after creating an entry in /etc/fstab to set up an NFS mount, I get the following error with an NFS mount -- the mount does succeed, but something should change to get rid of the message: nfs warning: mount version older than kernel Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): # rpm -q kernel util-linux kernel-2.6.1-220.127.116.11 util-linux-2.12pre-3 How reproducible: very Steps to Reproduce: 1. perform an NFS mount on RHEL4

It's OK for the message to be there. It's just a warning.
Comment 2 Glen A. Foster 2004-02-23 17:07:12 EST
Strange this is not a bug. Every other NFS mount warning I've ever reported was closed FIXED, not NOTABUG. Are you certain? Is this the behavior RHEL4 will exhibit? If so, we need to document this somewhere; if not, please consider re-opening this defect and closing it when an appropriate fix is implemented.

Unfortunately it's the kernel that prints out this message, so I can't just disable it in /bin/mount. The kernel prints it out when the mount program isn't as recent as the kernel's NFS mount structure... According to the source code, this message will go away when we start using the >= 2.6.2 kernel - /bin/mount just doesn't support the particular NFS mount structure found in early 2.6. kernels.
