Description Jared Greenwald 2005-04-06 15:51:34 UTC
Description of problem:
Attempt NFSv4 loopback mount never completes.

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

How reproducible:
Attempt NFSv4 loopback mount.

Steps to Reproduce:
- Setup /etc/extports to export a filesystem in a way that NFSv4 understands.
/mnt/testfs     *(rw,fsid=0,insecure,no_subtree_check,sync)
- increase the number of NFSD threads to 32
echo "32" >/etc/sysconfig/nfs
- start nfs service
/etc/init.d/nfs start
- mount the filesystem through loopback as type nfs4
mount -t nfs4 -o nocto,rsize=32768,wsize=32768 localhost:/ /mnt/testfs_loopback
Actual results:

Expected results:
loopback mount

Additional info:
This works fine on Gentoo.

Just to be clear, what is the kernel version your using?

Comment 2 Jared Greenwald 2005-04-08 13:43:32 UTC
I had been running kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.1177_FC4 with nfs-utils-1.0.7-1.  I have
since upgraded to kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.1226_FC4 and nfs-utils-1.0.7-5.

It seems to be working now...

# showmount -e
Export list for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
/var/tmp *
# mount -t nfs4 -o nocto,rsize=32768.wsize=32768 localhost:/ /mnt/
# mount
localhost:/ on /mnt type nfs4 (rw,nocto,rsize=32768.wsize=32768,addr=
