var-lib-nfs-rpc_pipefs.mount fails without a meaningful error message
Last modified: 2011-10-29 06:34:04 EDT
Description of problem:
NFS idmapd isn't started because the "RPC Pipe File System" fails to mount. Specifically, boot.log shows:
Starting RPC Pipe File System ESC[1;31mfailedESC[0m, see 'systemctl status var-lib-nfs-rpc_pipefs.mount' for details.
Starting NFSv4 ID-name mapping daemon ESC[1;31mabortedESC[0m because a dependency failed.
The output of "systemctl status var-lib-nfs-rpc_pipefs.mount" is:
var-lib-nfs-rpc_pipefs.mount - RPC Pipe File System
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/var-lib-nfs-rpc_pipefs.mount; static)
Active: active (mounted) since Fri, 28 Oct 2011 17:04:08 -0600; 16min ago
Process: 384 ExecMount=/bin/mount sunrpc /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs -t rpc_pipefs (code=exited, status=32)
Oddly, when the mountpoint appears to be mounted correctly--the output of "grep sunrpc /proc/mounts" is:
sunrpc /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs rpc_pipefs rw,relatime 0 0
Unfortunately, I cannot find any error messages in the logs to illuminate what is happening.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The idmapd service is not running. There are no meaningful error messages.
The idmapd service should be running. If it fails to run, there should be meaningful error messages.
