Hi

I've got a diskless frontend working through pxe boot.
Everything works ok, except I cannot play my music collection which is located on the backend server. I have exported the directory, through /etc/exports . I have tested it by mounting it on the backend server with no problems. But when I try to mount it on the diskless frontend, it does'nt mount. I get no errors, but the music is not mounted. This is the command I use on the diskles frontend
sudo mount server://media/share/music /media/share/music

Any help will be appreciated

Does that directory exist on the diskless client (i.e., on the compressed image or diskless cache)? It must exist prior to the mount command.

Is the IP-Adresse of the diskless frontend allowed to mount the folder? I think via default it is limited to 127.0.0.1.
