Mounting NFS shares: "can't read superblock"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to mount an NFS share from either Ubuntu-Dapper or Gentoo-Current
(and perhaps others), I get this error:
[root@Orchestrator mnt]# mount 192.168.1.112:/pub/readonly nfs
mount: 192.168.1.112:/pub/readonly: can't read superblock
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an NFS share on the Fedora server.
2. Issue the mount command as above on the client.
Share does not mount. See above.
Share should mount.
can you post a binary bzip2 tethereal trace
(i..e tethereal -w /tmp/mount.pcap host <server> ; bzip2 /tmp/mount.pcap)
Unfortunately, I deleted that partition :-(. Sorry I can't help. Has anybody
else experienced this bug?
I have experienced the exact same scenario. I tried to open ports on the
firewall for nfs, sunrpc, portmap, and several others, but it still did not
work. I figured out that if I disable the FC5 firewall COMPLETELY, I can mount
an NFS filesystem on another box.
I think fedora could be made easier to use if the exact list of ports to open on
the firewall were listed, or maybe the export GUI could be modified to do this
for the user?
Note taken.... Having a GUI to set up NFS ports would be very good....
and will being to looking to it...
But for know I will be closing this b....
