I really really hate NFS at this point, for years this protocol has under performed and malfunctioned, never worked properly and reliably and is a bi*** to troubleshoot. No, there are no logs to speak of.
And at this point, the auto mount via fstab fails every time I restart the servers. So if I NFS mount on system A from system B, I get an "access denied" message from System B. System B logs nowhere WHY this happens. After I restart the NFS daemon on system B, the mount works without a hitch. So every time I restart system A or B, I have to go on system B and restart the daemon by hand.
Typical hallmark of a P.O.S. technology,
1. no logging whatsoever in case of errors
2. unreliable, works when it "feels like it"
Wishing NFS would be laid to rest, wishing there was any progress in the open source community of developing 21st century technologies, instead of using an ancient protocol that by now smells of rot ;-)
I would probably have to develop it myself, as complacency with really old technologies seems to be abound.
Why is innovation so difficult? Because next to the 5% of innovators, there are 95% complacent people that don't see anything wrong with the current state, totally fail to see it and fight the innovators all the way. I still shake my head when I hear people defend the almost 100 year old 24p frame format in movie theaters, the fligker and stutter and blur, when the two nice people Peter Jackson and James Cameron came around and thought it might be a good idea to get rid of a silly technical limitation like that and raise it to 48p
