NFS mount limits

NFS mount limits

Post by Moshe Libenso » Mon, 10 Apr 2000 04:00:00

i work with AMD and mount NFS dir to a big network. the NFS server is a SUN
Solaris runinh YP/NIS.
is there a limitation on the number of mounted fs i can have on the linux
machine (debian 2.1r5 with kernel 2.0.36). if there is a limitation how can
i override it?
i tried changing the kernel to 2.2.14 and stil had a few problems.

1. Increasing NFS mount limit in 2.2.5

        We are running Redhat 6.0, kernel 2.2.5 -- and are
stumped trying to increase the number of NFS mounted
file systems the kernel will support.

        Appears to be capped at about 255 at present --
we need approximately 600.  We have something about
increasing a define in "fs.h" -- but are wondering if
there is an easier approach.

        Many thanks!
