I have a newly installed system (Debian) with an NFS share. The content of the /etc/exports file is:
/discs (insecure, rw, nohide)
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:
server# mount -t nfs backups:/discs /mnt/temp/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on backups:/discs,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
I've searched a lot about this and many people claim that this can be solved by installing nfs-common and portmap. However, these packages are already installed. I've even reinstalled them just to be sure.
I also don't have a "mount.nfs" command.
The strange part is that the "showmount" command correctly identifies the share:
server# showmount -e backups
Export list for backups:
Any help would be appreciated
