Ubuntu 8.10 cannot mount red hat 9 NFS share


Hi Guys,


Im a bit baffled by this one even though I turned off my internal firewall(external firewall still on, all devices are on an internal network), added the following line to /etc/exports:

/home/mp3user/mp3s 10.0.0.244(rw,async)

Restarted nfs daemons, restarted portmap on the server

But yet when I try to mount the share from the client I still get the following error message:

mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting


Anyone have any clues on this one?

Anything in the server's /etc/hosts.allow or /etc/hosts.deny files?

Have a look in /var/log/messages on both systems and ensure firewalls on both systems are off.

Nothing in the cleint logs, but found this in the server logs: refused mount request from 10.0.0.244 for /home/mp3user/mp3s (/): no export entry, so now im wondering if I created my exports file in the wrong spot. I put it in /etc. Grrr

BTW: If that's RH9 (codename Shrike), that hasn't been updated in yrs, so wide open to exploits etc....

Yep thats exactly what it is, Red Hat 9 Shrike. My theory is that there are too many inconsistencies between the two OS's and thats maybe why its not working properly

Well, I did a bit more investigating and it seems that there are definitely some compatibility issues.

This time I logged into the client machine and attempted to connect. I didnt get any error messages. Here is what I noticed, none of the files are visible. If I set permissions I to 755 on the server I cannot create folders from the client machine, but if I set permissions to 777 I am able to create folders. However, I cannot see the new folder on the server.

From the client, when I check the properties of the folder, I do notice that the amount of available space corresponds to what should be available on the server share.

Its almost like its partially connecting, but not fully. Interesting.

RE RH9, I was worried about that myself, but wanted to check first. Any chance you can replace with a current distro?
Don't forget, if it gets owned we could all suffer, not just you...
iirc RH9 had nfsv2, nfs is now avail as v3 and v4, so could easily be that...
