Mounting nfs share from Fedora 14 to Fedora 5


Hi All,

After about a year break, I am back on LQ

I have nfs share shared from Feodra 14 machine, with /etc/exports having below content

Code:
/home  135.254.0.0/16(rw,sync,no_root_squash)
If I try to mount this on another Fedora 14 machine it mounts without any issue.
Code:
mount -t nfs 135.254.179.100:/home/  test
If I try to mount this share on Fedora 5 machine (I can't upgrade this machine for some reason), it gives following error.

Code:
[root@FC5 user1]# mount -t nfs 135.254.179.100:/home/  test
mount to NFS server '135.254.179.100' failed.
[root@FC5 user1]# mount -t nfs 135.254.179.100:/home/ -o nfsvers=3 test
mount to NFS server '135.254.179.100' failed: possible invalid protocol.
Anticipating some help !

Thanks,
Vinaya

I got the answer, I have to specify nfs4 as switch to mount.

This works !

Code:
mount -t nfs4 135.254.179.100:/home/ test
Thanks
