Description armand.bendanan 1999-09-15 14:11:26 UTC
I have installed the new redhat linux 6.0 release on a
pentium PC which serves as a NFS server. and I got some
troubles with nfs mount.

I have a sun workstation which is an NFS client, and when I
want to mount a partition, I got the message on the server
(the PC):
                svc: unknown version (3)

What I have to say is that I have also 2 other PC running
under redhat 5.2, and they can mount correctly the
partitions from the server.

On the server (redhat 6.0):
> rpc.mountd --version
kmountd 1.2.2 (0.4.22)

On the others PC (redhat 5.2):
> rpc.mountd --version
Universal NFS Server 2.2beta37

Can you help me ?

Comment 1 armand.bendanan 1999-11-17 03:02:59 UTC
Olaf Kirch (orik.de) find a working solution:
I have to modify the starting of the mountd in rc.d/init.d/nfs:
mountd --> mountd -N 3

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-03-15 13:52:30 UTC
On the readhat 6.0 NFS server, I lauch now the mountd with the option '-N 3' 
and it works fine.

Right, the sun workstation wanted to use NFSv3.
