I am configuring NFS for my LAN as following:
The server(192.168.2.101) has nfs, nfslock, portmap running. The /etc/exports file is:
#this has only one line
On the client(192.168.2.103), nfs,netfs,nfslock and portmap are running
The /etc/fstab on the client is:
#the local mount directives is cut
192.168.2.101:/home /home nfs bg,soft,nfsvers=2 0 0
Trying to mount NFS volume on client give the following error in /var/log/messages:
localhost mount: mount to NFS server '192.168.2.101' failed: System Error: No route to host (retrying).
On the client, issuing
give correct result, dropping rate =0%
On the server,
also give droping rate =0%
Does anyone have any idea what may goes wrong?
PS:The document i used to config NFS is
which also mentions that the client must be able to use host to look up server name and the reverse but does not say how to implement it. Does it actually cause this error?
Hope anyone can give a hint
