automount rpcbind failures

automount rpcbind failures

Post by Robert J. Berg » Fri, 30 Sep 1994 14:43:03

I have a strange situation that I just can't figure out. We have several
SparcStations running Solaris 2.x. Two of them will not nfsmount each other's
file systems. Neither via automount or a manual mount.

I can mount the filesystems of other Spaces on ether one of them and I
can mount filesystems from the problem machines onto other Sparcs.

I completely rebuilt both systems and upgraded from Solaris 2.3 to 2.4
and reinitialized NIS+. This did not correct or modify the behaviour.

I then set the nsswitch.conf to files mode and disabled NIS. The problem
was still there.

I've tried to instrument all the various daemons, but there doesn't seem to
be a debug mode for mountd or nfsd.

The only error messages I'm getting in /var/log/syslog are:

One one of the servers:
Sep 28 19:05:44 gaia automountd[150]: server infobase not responding

On the other (the one that primarily requests mounts:)

Sep 28 18:30:48 infobase automountd[15204]: server gaia not responding
Sep 28 18:41:14 infobase automountd[15282]: pingmount: gaia: RPC: Rpcbind failure - RPC: Timed out
Sep 28 18:49:45 infobase automountd[15282]: gaia: unmount: RPC: Timed out
Sep 28 18:57:19 infobase automountd[15282]: Duplicate request

1. rpcbind failure when mounting


        I keep getting an error when I try and mount
a filesystem from another machine. THis is the error I
get: nfs mount: antibes:: RPC: Rpcbind failure - RPC: Timed out

        On antibes it looks like I have everything running that
should be: rpcbind, nfsd, mountd. When I do a share the partition
I want shared shows up.

        Any ideas? Thanks.
