I have 3 linux computers. A redhat 72 server, redhat 72 workstation
and a redhat 73 notebook. I setup NFS on the server using the HOWTO from
ldp.org. Everthing went fairly smooth. Then I setup the client on the
redhat 72 workstation and have it working fine. Now the notebook is the
problem. Only on bootload I get the error message in the subject line of
my post. Here is the syslog edited:

note the ./network start after failure. If I look at the portmap script
I think it exits if networking is not up..
# Check that networking is up.
if [ "$NETWORKING" = "no" ]
[ -f /sbin/portmap ] || exit 0
I can mount the share from the command line after bootload no problem.
I think this indicates the exports file on the server is good and
firewall rules (local and server) plus the hosts.allow file are okay
The fstab is exactly the same as on the good workstation
the rpcinfo -p <servername> shows all the services okay
Here is the fstab entry from the notebook:
> gateway:/home/share /mnt/share nfs rw,hard,intr 0 0
When I traced the traffic with ethereal it looked like dhcp was
assigning the ip address of the notebook after the port mapper failure
so I set a static address - no help -
I also tried a faster pcmcia 10/100 card again - no change -
I googled for solutions and did not find any.
I can get it to work on bootload with a mount command in the rc.local file
Below is the /etc/mtab with the share mounted:
This the /var/lib/nfs/rmtab from the server: (x.x.x.04 is the notebook)Quote:> gateway:/home/share /mnt/share nfs rw,addr=192.168.100.1 0 0

And the /var/lib/nfs/xtab from the server:
Any help to get this working with the fstab mount is most welcomed.Quote:> /home/share 192.168.100.4(rw,async,wdelay,hide,secure,root_squash,no_all_squash,
