NFS problems (RPC timeout)

NFS problems (RPC timeout)

Post by spanne » Wed, 22 Sep 1999 04:00:00


I have installed Red Hat 6.0 to two PCs and am having problems with NFS.
When mounting the remote file system from either end, I get an RPC time out
error. The network connection is alright as ping, FTP and telnet work fine.

I have read as much documentation as I can get my hands on and performed
the following tasks accordingly: I have placed the relevant entries into
/etc/exports and run exportfs with the relevant switches. I have issued the
mount command with the relevant switches and options.

I have grepped the output from the ps command and confirmed that portmap
and rpc.mountd are running on both machines, however, the output
information for nfsd does not look very encouraging. Each line for nfsd
contains a whole lot of zeroes and the string nfsd appears in square
brackets (e.g. [nfsd]). There is also an rpciod that appears the same way.

I tried the rpcinfo -p command, but there is no mention of nfs in the
output. I tried running /usr/sbin/rpc.nfsd manually, but get the error
message "nfssvc:Address already in use". I tried "killall -HUP
/usr/sbin/rpc.nfsd" but this produced "no process killed".




1. NFS PROBLEM - RPC Timeout error

I have a problem with NFS that hopefully someone outthere has seen and
has a fix for it.  I have two computers both running Linux.  The first
time I setup NFS shares on one computer I can access the shares from
the the other computer without a problem.  Once I reboot the computer
I get an RPC Timeout error when trying to mount the directories.

I do showmount from the NFS server and the directories being share
show up.

I can mount the directory being shared locally on the NFS server.  But
not from another computer.

The client NFS is ok on the client computer - I can mount directories
from a SUN system without a problem.

I am using RedHat 5.0 on both the client and the server.

Thanks in advance for any help on this matter.
