Fedora 14 nfs service does not work
Last modified: 2010-12-01 12:08:19 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora 14 does not properly serve files with nfs, even to same host.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. [ edit /etc/exportfs to export any mounted directory to local subnet ]
2. service nfs start
3. mkdir /mnt/test
4. mount -t nfs -o rw,hard,intr,bg xxx:/path /mnt/test
A message onscreen that the request is being backgrounded; multiple messages in /var/log/messages: "mount to NFS server '192.168.10.1' failed: Stale NFS file handle, retrying"
Tested on Mac Mini 2010 model running Fedora 14 beta, kernel 188.8.131.52-28.fc14.x86_64 or kernel 184.108.40.206-37.fc14.x86_64. I also tried the same steps on Fedora 13 and it worked without trouble. I tried to use Fedora 14 as the client and Fedora 13 as the NFS server and was successful. I was unable to use Fedora 13 as the client and Fedora 14 as the server; the Fedora 13 machine showed exactly the same symptoms and didn't mount the volume.
Please update to the latest nfs-utils vers
to see if the problem still exists. tia...
Testing after updating to Fedora 14 Release solved problem. Thank you.
