Debian Fails to Remount NFS Share on Server Reboot


Like the title says, whenever my server reboots, the backup share that's mounted on debian fails to remount (or stay mounted). I just get a series of question marks (???? ???), and a "permission denied" message, like this:

Code:
$ ll /mnt
ls: cannot access /mnt/backup: Permission denied
total 8
?????????? ? ?      ?        ?                ? backup
But if I do "# umount /mnt/backup" and then mount it manually with mount -a (to make sure the fstab entry is right), it umounts and then mounts just fine.

I've googled and read over the troubleshooting page for NFS, but I still can't figure out why it's doing this. I don't think it's the server, because the share remounts fine after rebooting on my other computer. Anyone have any ideas?

I would check to see if it's trying to mount the NFS share before the network is up at boot time...

What version of nfs-common and nfs-utils do you have ? there were several bugs in some of the older versions.


I'm guessing that you are running etch (stable) ?

nfs-common is 1.1.2.6. apt-get says there is no such package as nfs-utils.

Maybe it is trying to mount it too soon. How can I change the boot order of these services in debian?

you are right I was mislead by the bug search.. it helped me out by identifying uninonfs-utils as nfs-utils..

here is the correct bug link for nfs-common in Lenny..
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgre...n;dist=testing

nothing there jumps out at me as exactly the issue you are describing though.
