# The portmap line is redundant, but it is left to remind you that

portmap : ALL

>>>>>[root@rusta mnt]exportfs -a
exportfs: /etc/exports [1]: Neither 'subtree_check' or 'no_subtree_check' specified for export "192.168.22.162:/home".
Assuming default behaviour ('no_subtree_check').
NOTE: this default has changed since nfs-utils version 1.0.x

>>>>> [root@rusta mnt]# /etc/init.d/nfs-common start
Starting NFS common utilities
Starting rpc.statd [ OK ]
Starting rpc.idmapd [ OK ]

What about doing things in order ?
1) launch either portmap or rpcbind
service rpcbind start (or service portmap start)
2) launch service shared by client and server
service nfs-common start
3) launch server service
server nfs-server start

See http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Releases...08.0/Notes#NFS, and /usr/share/doc/nfs-utils/README.1.1.0.upgrade.urpmi for details about the changes since Mandriva 2007.1.

BTW, using bash completion would avoid you painful error message for non-existing service scripts: try "service nfs<TAB>"

I had a similar problem with Fedora, but I did have the relevant services running. So this thread was useful indirectly.

In my case the problem was that the server firewall was blocking ports I needed. I unblocked port 111, but now I need to fix and unblock some other ports.
