Description Libor Pechacek 2004-05-11 11:05:30 UTC
Description of problem:
rpc.mountd does work correctly, hence effectively disabling NFS 
mounts from FC2-t2 NFS server.

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

How reproducible:
Always in my configuration, both with 2.6.3- and 2.6.5 
custom kernel.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. [root@fmh root]# cat /etc/exports
2. [root@fmh root]# service portmap start
Starting portmapper:                                       [  OK  ]
3. [root@fmh root]# S=start; service nfslock $S && service rpcgssd $S 
&& service rpcidmapd $S && service rpcsvcgssd $S && service nfs $S
Starting NFS statd:                                        [  OK  ]
Starting NFS services:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting NFS daemon:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS mountd:                                       [  OK  ]
4. [root@fmh root]# mount -t nfs /tmp/nfsmnt/
mount: failed, reason given by server: Permission 
5. [root@fmh root]# killall rpc.mountd
6. [root@fmh root]# /var/tmp/nfs-utils-root/usr/sbin/rpc.mountd
7. [root@fmh root]# mount -t nfs /tmp/nfsmnt/
8. [root@fmh root]# ls -la /tmp/nfsmnt/
total 16
drwxr-xr-x   4 root  root  4096 Mar 12 05:33 .
drwxrwxrwt   7 root  root  4096 May 11 06:19 ..
drwx------  48 farco farco 4096 May 11 06:15 farco
drwx------  10 vit   vit   4096 Apr 18 09:29 vit
Actual results:
mount: failed, reason given by server: Permission 

Expected results:
mount succeeds

Additional info:
mountd started in 6th step is newly compiled nfs-utils-1.0.6 
(rpmbuild -bi nfs-utils.spec) from nfs.sf.net.  The problem seems to 
lie in RH patches to mountd and its libraries, namely the /proc/ file 
interface is probably not used in correct way.

I have no chance to test FC2t3 now but the problem may persist as it 
was not reported before.
