Description John S. Monaco 2004-04-15 12:28:46 EDT
Description of problem:

Despite the fact that NFS is enabled, you can't actually mount
anything over a network.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1.# chkconfig --list nfs
  nfs             0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

2.mkdir /mnt/test_mount

3.# mount -v /mnt/test_mount
  mount: no type was given - I'll assume nfs because of the colon
  mount: fs type nfs not supported by kernel
Actual results:

NFS mount was not successful.

Expected results:

NFS mount would have succeeded.

Additional info:

I did a "make defconfig", and noticed that NFSv3 client and server are
not enabled filesystems by default.

You'll probably have to bug upstream to change defconfig.
Comment 2 John S. Monaco 2004-04-28 12:45:10 EDT
I am continually doing research on this bug, because it made no sense
that it has gone un-noticed by everyone else. Come to find out, in the
%post section of my ks.cfg, I had the following command:

# chkconfig --level 345 nfs on

So, if I do a build with the above command commented out, after a
reboot, I see this:

1.# chkconfig --list nfs
  nfs             0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off    4:off    5:off    6:off

... but guess what? NFS does actually work! It's only when you enable
it, that it stops working.

Sorry for the bad information in my original bug report.

It does not appear that this is a issue, please 
reopen if it is...
