Description bentlema 2000-02-09 20:04:29 UTC
In testing out the 6.2beta bootnet disk I've discovered that it can't mount
NFS exported filesystems from SunOS 5.5.1 and 5.6 systems.  It can mount
NFS filesystems from other Linux systems.  So NFS installs are broken
unless you're installing off of another Linux box...which we are not.

I can confirm this on Solairs [2.]7 too.

The bug appears to be in the v3 NFS/MOUNT handling.
I killed off the v3 NFS and MOUNT services on the Solaris box
(rpcinfo -d 100003 3; rpcinfo -d 100005 3)
and then tried the install again.  It worked fine.
You do need to kill off both though.  NFS alone isn't enough.
(This may be due to a bug at Sun's end, though.)

I also note that the _installed_ version of RHL6.2b has no problems
mounting from an NFS v3 server; it's just the boot floppy version.

I can confirm this on NetApp OnTap 5.X as well.

Comment 3 Martin Lichtin 2000-03-24 04:38:59 UTC
It can't mount from a Linux RH6.0 NFS (knfsd-1.2.2-4) server either.
The same NFS mount works fine when doing a RH6.1 installation.
However, the 6.2beta installer _can_ mount from a knfsd-1.4.7-7 based

Are these issues still present in the final 6.2 release?

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2000-06-22 16:39:49 UTC
Closed due to inactivity - please reopen if the final 6.2 product exhibits these
