Description of problem:
When I try kickstart install from a RH 6.2 install server with
kernel-2.2.19-6.2.7 and nfs-utils-0.3.1-0.6.x.1 installed, using
kickstart floppies of different versions (6.2, 7.0, and 7.1) mount
fails when using the 7.0 version.
During the post-install part of the 7.1 install, it takes exactly 5
minutes for mounting to succeed. When I use the nolock mount-option
in de post-install part, there is no delay.
Solution to the above problems seems:
On the install-server (RH 6.2, kernel-2.2.19-6.2.7,
nfs-utils-0.3.1-0.6.x.1) I changed the script /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs by
adding the line
after the checks for kernelversion and release. With this I forced
use of NFS version less than 3 in all cases.
So to my opinion NFSv3 is not handled properly by rpc.mountd from
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from a bootnet.img floppy
2. At Boot: type: linux ks=nfs:install-server:/kickstart/<version>/ks.cfg
Actual Results: Mount failed
Expected Results: Mount succeeded
I'm sorry to report, this fell over the horizon due to
manpower constraints, closing.
