Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1301612
Nautilus stopped recognizing "nfs://" URLs
Last modified: 2016-07-19 14:40:47 EDT
Description of problem:
I can no longer browse nfs shares from Nautilus. If I type in a NFS URL, Nautilus immediately says the URL is not recognized. All of my NFS bookmarks stopped working, too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Nautilus.
2. Click "Connect to Server" icon located in the left pane.
3. In the "Connect to Server" window's "Server Address" text box, type "nfs://".
Nautilus reports "This file server type is not recognized."
Nautilus connects to the NFS server and opens the share in the Nautilus browser window.
Browsing NFS shares worked before. My system is update so the only thing I can gather is that an update broke it.
The NFS server has not had any configuration changes. I can still manually mount (i.e. from a terminal) the NFS exports and use them as before.
This ticket can be closed. I've figured out what was wrong and now I've realized "nfs://" hasn't worked in Nautilus for a while.
My Nautilus bookmarks were actually bookmarks for the automount locations and it was autofs (configured in freeipa) that was the underlying problem. Restarting the sssd service fixed that: the bookmarks are working now because autofs is working again.
Sorry for the noise!
