NFS mounting problem.

NFS mounting problem.

Post by Brad Killebr » Tue, 08 Aug 1995 04:00:00

I've got a question about mounting /home via NFS.

We've got a cluster of 50 Linux boxes.  Since these are for student
access, I'd like to mount their home directory on a network file server,
also a Linux machine.

I would like to mount the server's /export directory as /home on
the client.  I've had success doing this, but for some reason the
users do not have write priveleges.   This is how I've got it setup:

On the client, in /etc/fstab:

# network mounted file systems.            /home nfs rw,exec 1 1

And on the host, in /etc/exports:

/export                 tech*

Does anyone see my error?  Basically, I want all of the machines
in the Linux cluster to mount their /home directories from the /export
directory on the NFS server.

Any help would be great.

mount: can't get address for nfs-server.kauai

What does can't get address mean on my linux system?
How can I fix it?

I am running caldera 2.3, red hat 6.1, and
mandrake 6.??
I can't get nfs working from any of them to
any others.
