Question NFS problem after new kernel install


Hi All,

just compiled a new kernel 2.6.7 on RedHat 8.0. I have two machines..let's say A and B. On A / /boot and /sys are exported via /etc/exports. Machine B are mouting these sources when booting via NFS. Since i updated the kernel i get the following errors when machine A is starting the NFS services :

---
Jul 8 09:30:13 hostA exportfs: hostB:/boot: No such device
Jul 8 09:30:13 hostA exportfs: hostB:/sys: No such device
Jul 8 09:30:13 hosta exportfs: hostB:/: No such device
Jul 8 09:30:13 hostA nfs: Starting NFS services: succeeded
Jul 8 09:30:13 hostA nfs: rpc.rquotad startup succeeded
Jul 8 09:30:13 hostA nfsd[6376]: nfssvc: No such device
Jul 8 09:30:13 hosta nfs: rpc.nfsd startup failed
Jul 8 09:30:13 hostA nfs: rpc.mountd startup succeeded

----

cat /etc/exports:

/ hostB(ro,sync,no_root_squash) /sys hostB(ro,sync,no_root_squash) /boot hostB(ro,sync,no_root_squash)

----

cat /etc/hosts.allow

ALL:hostB

----

With the old kernel 2.4.20-8 i had no problems.

NFS support is compiled into the new kernel.

Any help is appreciated !

Thanks in advance

Martin
