Description Stas Sergeev 2012-10-25 12:10:01 EDT
Description of problem:
After the online fedora update, NFS server silently stopped to work.
After lots of investigation I've found out that RPCNFSDCOUNT of
/etc/sysconfig/nfs is mishandled. If it is commented out, the
NFS server will fail to work. It appeared to be commented out
because I ended up with nfs.rpmnew where it was not commented.
The bug seems to be in
and the following change seems to fix the problem:
--- nfs-server.service.old	2012-06-22 21:36:20.000000000 +0400
+++ nfs-server.service	2012-10-25 20:06:43.888744824 +0400

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Comment out RPCNFSDCOUNT in /etc/sysconfig/nfs
2. restart nfs.service
3. try to mount nfs
Actual results:
mount locks up forever, silently

Expected results:
mount should succeed

Comment 1 Stas Sergeev 2012-10-25 12:20:55 EDT
Additionally, I'd say that it is very bad
that no failure is reported, anywhere.
systemctl status  nfs.service
says nothing bad.
