Cannot mount NFS share (wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock)...
I have a newly installed system (Debian) with an NFS share. The content of the /etc/exports file is:
I would like to mount this share on another debian machine on the same network. However, whenever I try to mount it the following happens:
I also don't have a "mount.nfs" command.
The strange part is that the "showmount" command correctly identifies the share:
Any help would be appreciated
I can connect to the NFS share using my Mac. This must mean that the problem is on the client side and not on the server side.
I still can't connect using my other debian machine.
I've solved the issue I was having
Just to be sure that the absence of the mount.nfs command was the issue I used strace for the mount command and found the following:
Then I checked and the version of "nfs-common" that apt-get was installing was not the latest one as announced on the debian web site.
So I manually downloaded the nfs-common ".deb" package, solved a dependency for the "libgssglue1" package, installed it and there it was... mount.nfs
Really can't understand why the package downloaded by "apt-get" did not install the command, but it is solved now and that is all that matters to me...
Thank you for trying...
Thank you for your post
I had to install ubuntu on one of my machines and it did not install nfs common much to my supprise
I was thinking the problem was on the sever end until I ran across your post
all is well now
