mount: blah failed, security flavor not supported
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:38 EST
Description of problem:
received the security flavor error message while trying to
mount an nfs export from a netapp.
mounting a local nfs export works as expected.
mounting a remote nfs export from a 7.3 system works as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount server:/dir /mnt/tmp
2. mount: server:/dir failed, security flavor not supported
(error occurs with enforcing on and off)
3. mount localhost:/dir /mnt/tmp
4. works as expected
additional info: this last worked in util-linux-2.12-4.
Which kernel and util-linux are you using?
kernel-2.6.3-2.1.214 and util-linux-2.12-13 seem to work fine...
kernel-2.6.3-184.108.40.206.1 & util-linux-2.12-13
Using a x86_64 machine with the kernel-2.6.3-220.127.116.11.1 and
the util-linux-2.12-13 rpm (basically a fresh install of fc2)
I'm still unable to reproduce this error....
Would it be possible to get an ethereal trace of this?
That way we can tell if the server is failing the mount
or if failure on the client...
Also could you try mounting a volume on toaster.boston,
since that's the Netapps filer I'm using...
I'm not having any problems mounting toaster, but I can't mount curly.
We have recently upgraded toaster to Ontap 6.5R1. So its possible
we are running into a known Netapp bug.
If the network trace shows curly is failing the mount and
toaster is not then it could be assume its a bug your version
But... if the trace shows no failures, then the problem is
most likely on our end.
mount -o nfsvers=2 curly... <-- works w/ nfsvers=2 option.
