nfs mounting should fallback to v3
Last modified: 2009-11-12 10:30:02 EST
Description of problem:
After doing a fresh rawhide install yesterday I can no longer
mount local nfs3 exports like I used to be able to.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rawhide
2. try to mount an nfs3 server
# showmount -e fileserver
# mount fileserver:/exports/pub /mnt
mount.nfs: mounting fileserver:/exports/pub failed, reason given by server:
No such directory
nfs server to mount or at least an intelligible error like
"nfs v3 server: please use '-o v3' mount option".
I do hope fallback to version 3 can be done -
there are still many nfs3 server around in production.
Fixed in nfs-utils-1.2.0-14.fc12
