nfs mount -- RPC: Program not registered

Post by ken.. » Sat, 16 Dec 2000 09:17:47



I have two 2.7 Solaris boxes: sunfire, and solturbine... sunfire shares
a directory via a /etc/dfs/dfstab entry and "shareall" has been
executed... On solturbine I'm trying to nfs mount:

# mount -F nfs sunfire:/export/home/orbix /opt/iona
nfs mount: sunfire: : RPC: Program not registered
nfs mount: retrying: /opt/iona

What type of "RPC" setup do I need on sunfire?...

Thanks,
Ken

I think the nfsd is not running on the server side.
You can start nfsd in /usr/lib/nfs/nfsd

If the first entry was added to /etc/dfs/dfstab, then nfs services were
not already running.

You need to either reboot, or run '/etc/init.d/nfs.server start'.

That will start NFS services and share all the entries in the dfstab.

Your nfsd deamon is not running on solturbine

Execute /usr/lib/nfs/nfsd. This will get you going. After you make an entry in
your dfstab file, nfsd will start during boot.

1. Help! NFS mount: RPC: Program not registered

Guys,

Could do with some help here.  Despite having got NFS mounts working on
previous distributions, I'm having problems for some reason with RedHat
5.2 and RedHat 6.0 -- I keep getting "RPC: Program not registered".

I've had a good look through the FAQs and found this (paraphrased)
section:

Is the portmapper running?  If not, start it.
Is mountd running? If not, start it.
Is nfsd running? If not start it.
Is the portmapper forbidden to answer by /etc/hosts.deny?  If so, either
remove the rule in hosts.deny or add a rule to hosts.allow such that the
portmapper is allowed to talk to you.

I've checked this, though, as follows:

On machine#1 (buddha, RH5.2/kernel 2.2.12/mountd:Universal NFS Server
2.2beta37):


    root       731  0.0  1.4  1488   688  ?  S    21:23   0:00
rpc.mountd
    root       740  0.0  1.4  1508   696  ?  S    21:23   0:00 rpc.nfsd

    bin        681  0.0  0.9  1096   452  ?  S    21:17   0:00 portmap

    portmap: LOCAL
    nfsd: LOCAL
    ALL: LOCAL

    /home/matt      seville(rw)


On machine#2 (seville, RH6.0/kernel 2.2.5/mountd:kmountd 1.4.7 (0.4.22))


    1521 pts/9    S      0:00 rpc.statd
    2279 ?        S      0:00 rpc.rquotad
    2290 ?        S      0:00 rpc.mountd --no-nfs-version 3
    2310 pts/9    SW     0:00 [rpciod]

    bin       2214  0.0  0.3  1088  444 ?        S    21:25   0:00
portmap

    portmap: LOCAL
    nfsd: LOCAL
    ALL: LOCAL

    /home/matt      buddha(rw)

    /home/matt      buddha

but, unfortunately, every time I run either:

    mount -t nfs seville:/home/matt /mnt/tmp

from machine#1(buddha) or:

    mount -t nfs buddha:/home/matt /mnt/tmp/

from machine#2(seville), I get:

    mount: RPC: Program not registered

which I cannot understand.  Any help much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
