Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 244595
MOUNTD_NFS_V1 no longer applicable
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:35 EDT
Description of problem:
This mostly a documentation problem. Anyone trying to run a purely nfsv4 system
will try to turn off all the older versions of nfs (nfs v1, v2, v3). The
startup script /etc/init.d/nfs leads one to believe that one needs to add the
following to /etc/sysconfig/nfs:
The problem is if one adds MOUNTD_NFS_V1=NO to /etc/sysconfig/nfs then
rpc.mountd fails to start up. This option is no longer valid.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 7 (also FC6)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add MOUNTD_NFS_V1=NO to /etc/sysconfig/nfs
3. watch rpc.mountd fail to start
rpc.mountd fails to start with a a usage error printed to the screen.
rpc.mountd should start without any nfs v1 services.
This option is no longer needed as rpc.mountd no longer serves nfs-v1 anyway.
The following section in /etc/init.d/nfs should be removed and the example
/etc/sysconfig/nfs file should have this option removed. (I beleve fc6 had a
template file at /etc/sysconfig/nfs, I can't find it under F7, but that may be a

< RPCMOUNTDOPTS="$RPCMOUNTDOPTS --no-nfs-version 1" ;;
I think there is some confusion here. The MOUNTD_NFS_Vx variables
control the RPC version mountd will use, not nfsd (i.e the NFS server).
Granted these option are a bit obsolete, but they do seem to
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there have not been any
updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to "CLOSED INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested,
please feel free to reopen the bug report.
Thank you in advance.
Note that maintenance for Fedora 7 will end 30 days after the GA of Fedora 9.
