NFS configuration


Hi All,
This will probably be very easy for you to answer.
I am trying to set up NFS Server and Client. (and nis as well.) Here is my basic configuration.
RHEL4
Server: test.rhtest.org 10.10.99.100
client: test1.rhtest.org 10.10.99.101

server
/etc/exports
/home *.rhtest.org(mp,rw)

/etc/hosts.deny
ALL:ALL

/etc/hosts.allow
portmap:.rhtest.org
mountd:.rhtest.org
rquotad:.rhtest.org
lockd:.rhtest.org
statd:.rhtest.org

portmap service is running
nfs service is running

rpcinfo -p shows
portmap
status
rquotad
nfs
nlockmgr
mountd
are up.

I have restarted the services with
service nfs restart
service portmap restart

I have also used exportfs -ra to restart

On the client I added the following

/etc/fstab
test:/home /exprt nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,hard,intr,nolock 0 0

/exprt is the local directory I am mounting /home to.

I have manually tried to mount the remote directory using:
#mount -t nfs 10.10.99.100:/home /exprt
and
#mount -a -t nfs

response is:
mount to nfs server "test" failed: server is down.

I am not sure what log to look at for direction and would like to understand what it is I am doing wrong.

As a linux newbie, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards
and
Thank You in advanced for your help

Steve

Hi,
Check whether your network connections are up, try ping from your client to server. If pinging is ok, check any firewall is running on your server. run rpcinfo -p serveripaddress from your client.

Hope this will help you

The fire wall appears to have been the issues.
