Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 116269
warning issued from NFS mount
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:11 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
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.
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.
