Cannot mount on Redhat Linux 6 (Rhel6)


I could not perform the mount function as below:

[root@linux-machine ~]# mount -o proto=tcp,async,rsize=262144,wsize=262144 /auto/some_tools


mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Then I tried to install the following, but it could not find the package:
sudo yum install nfs-common

[root@linux-machine ~]# sudo yum install nfs-common
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security
Setting up Install Process
No package nfs-common available.
Error: Nothing to do

Any help is appreciated.

At least on my SL 6 (RHEL 6 clone) box, the correct package to install is nfs-utils. You can also do:

yum groupinstall "Network file system client"

It didn't find the package either. In fact, it could not find any package also.

[root@Linux-machine ~]# sudo yum groupinstall "Network file system client"
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security
Setting up Group Process
Warning: Group Network file system client does not exist.
No packages in any requested group available to install or update
[Linux-machine ~]#

If you are using Red Hat beyond the trial period and have not paid the subscription you will not be able to download new software.
If you are paying the subscription, then Red Hat would be the best source of information.

see yancek's post, but if you are instead using CentOS here is a simple howto guide i found for you:

Again if you are using RHEL, then you need to pay for support and contact RH directly, they will have the answer, it is after all what you are paying for.

there might be a typo in the name
Do a yum search and copy/paste
yum grouplist
then from that list select the group
