View Full Version : [all variants] nfs client in 10.10 times out

November 3rd, 2010, 11:22 PM
hey guys,

I'm sharing some directories using NFS between my machines. I recently upgraded client machine to 10.10 and my nfs mounts stopped working. Server is 10.04, running stock unfsd (version 0.9.21+dfsg-1). Both systems are 32 bit.

I worked around this issue by downgrading nfs-common to 1:1.2.0-4ubuntu4 (lucid version).

My fstab entry looks like this:

blackstar:/var/www /var/www nfs port=2049,mountport=2049,mountproto=tcp,nomand,tcp 0 0

Mount used to tell me:

mount.nfs: Connection timed out

I don't like my solution at all. Anybody got an idea what went wrong or what changed?

I have an older RH 9 system I was trying to nfs mouunt. I had a heck of a time, I always got the timeout message from mouunt. Then I put this line in my fstab and it worked. Can't remember where I got it. My server is Ubuntu server 10.10.

(server.com):/backup /backup nfs nfsvers=2,suid,dev,exec 0 0
