I just acquired a Dell 705n NAS and plan on using it for storing music, movies, etc......
I have set up the networking for UNIX/NFS for my Slackware box as well as M$ Networking for the wife's PC. Now I am having a problem mounting the NFS shares that I have created. I have been searching over and over as to why I get the following error:
mount.nfs: mount system call failed
This is the command I am using to mount with:
mount -t nfs SQDNGUNS_NAS:/MUSIC /mnt/nfs/music
mount -t nfs 192.168.15.105:/MUSIC /mnt/nfs/music
I can ping the NAS either by the IP or SQDNGUNS_NAS with no problem. I do not have a firewall running at all.
Output of rpcinfo -p
$ rpcinfo -p
program vers proto port
100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
100000 2 udp 111 portmapper
100024 1 udp 865 status
100024 1 tcp 865 status
I have read the NFS MAN pages and other tutorials over and over but it is now obvious that I am overlooking something that is probably quite simple. I am attempting this on my 12.2 box with a custom kernel, 2.6.30
Any ideas where I am failing to make this work properly?
Thanks in advance...........
