NFS Hangs on new 17 install

Post by FFIXCollector » Thu Jun 26, 2014 9:21 am

So I tried searching the Internet, and these forums, and could'nt find any information. So forgive me if this has been posted before.

I'm trying to mount a single NFS shares, but everything I do the command hangs for 20 - 60 seconds or it fails to execute

Code: Select all

sudo mount 192.168.0.777:/home/user/ /home/user/Server\ Home
I am running the same command, to the same server using Lubuntu, Fedora, Ubuntu, and a WD Live Streamer. None of them have issues, none of them take more than 3 seconds to connect. What could I be doing wrong?

Your IP address is invalid. The last octet (.777) does not exist. The last number can be between .1 and .254. Perhaps you mean to use .77 instead?

Ok, I'm glad we agree on that point. But more importantly, did you type that in purposefully for the forum post or is that the actual IP address you are trying to mount the share from?

I have the same, or at least a similar, problem. When trying to mount a nfs share from a client freshly installed with mint 17 the mount command hangs indefinitely. When I boot back into mint 15, which I have still lingering on another partition, the mount command works just fine. Both installs have the exact same line in /etc/fstab for the mount.

I must admit that I haven't gotten around to upgrading the server yet. It is still running mint 15. As such the client runs nfs-common version 1.2.8 while on the server both nfs-common and nfs-kernel-server are on version 1.2.6. Possibly this issue will resolve itself when I upgrade the server. I don't know. In either case I wasn't able to find any useful information about this problem anywhere on the internet either.

Hm. This MAY help Or not.

I didn't get indefinite hanging mounting older debian server NFS shares onto mint17 but I did get very long delays.

A bit of research revealed that NFS version incompatibilities exist and specifying the right version avoids timeouts and trying other protocols.

So the mount command needs to look something like this:

mount server1:/var/www /home/me/server1 -o nfsvers=3

I tried that option using NFS 3 & 4. Didn't help
The Server IP is 192.168.1.222
