Description Kanwar Ranbir Sandhu 2016-01-25 09:08:49 EST
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):

How reproducible:

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://".

Actual results:
Nautilus reports "This file server type is not recognized."

Expected results:
Nautilus connects to the NFS server and opens the share in the Nautilus browser window.

Additional info:
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.
Comment 1 Kanwar Ranbir Sandhu 2016-01-26 08:58:03 EST
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!
