I'm attempting to setup a redhat 7.2 box as an nfs server. I've
followed various HOW-TO guides and am able to mount the exported
filesystem from my other machines (solaris and HP). At that point,
the clients can see the subdirectories on my linux machine (Sounds
good so far).
For testing purposes, I did the following on my server
"touch a b c d e"
As expected, on either of my client machines, I do my "ls" and I see
all the files.
However, here's when things get goofy.
On my server machine I do:
"mkdir jj kk ll mm"
At this point, both clients produce the same result when I do my "ls"
- They Hang. Eventually I get the "...not responding still trying"
message. Since, both clients act the same way, I'm thinking this is
something that is messed up on the server. I checked and rechecked
the steps those few trivial steps that were required to set up the
server and didn't see anything out of whack. The server is pretty
much a default setup from dell except ipchains is off.
Anybody else encountered anything like this one? Any advice is
