Re: NFS4 startup error - RPC MTAB not found ??



Edward Hourigan said the following on 14/06/2004 13:45:
When booting up, the script /etc/init.d/nfs reports:

Starting NFS services:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting NFS quotas:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS daemon:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS mountd:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting rpcidmapd
Starting NFS4 idmapd: Error: RPC MTAB does not exist.
Starting rpc.svcgssd


What is RPC MTAB?


Not sure if this is causing my NFS client problems or not.  Each client
reports 'permission denied' when trying to mount NFS shares.

You need to have the sunrpc module loaded which mounts the rpc_pipes filesystem.



grep -v '^#' /proc/mounts | awk '{ if ($3 ~ /^rpc_pipefs$/ ) print $2}'


should give you the following:

/var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs

If not, check that your sunrpc module is loading correctly. Try loading it manually,

modprobe sunrpc
