The system boots fine and even detect the NIC and takes the IP from our DHCP but gives the Error:- unable to mount the NFS directory.
i verified the NFS path which is working fine.
Please let me know you how to solve this problem?
If the NIC is coming up, is recognized, and is pulling a DHCP address, things appear to be working. Can you PING the NFS server? Have you checked the default router, gateway, and netmask that the device is getting? Have you checked the user name/password?
