Subject: Strange NFS problem


Hi all,

Over the last 5 days I've been troubled with a very strange problem with the NFS service that is running my web/mail server. Its an FC3 installation. For some reason, it just decided to not allow previously working shares to be accessible.

There is no firewall running on the machine since it sits on the LAN behind a gateway firewall machine. Might anyone have any ideas as to why NFS suddenly stopped allowing access to the shares that are being exported?

(SElinux is disabled)


There are a couple of things to check. Does the command exportfs -va cause the exports to start working? How about exportfs -vr?

If neither of those work, what does running the two commands get you?

for i in nfs nfslock portmap; do service $i stop; done
for i in portmap nfslock nfs; do service $i start; done

Of course, you want to look in /var/log/messages to see if the kernel is telling you anything there.

While I don't quite understand why it worked placing "async" into the options and then running the following two commands have got it working again:


EXPORTS FILE:
/var/www    192.168.0.252(async,insecure,no_root_squash,rw)

COMMANDS:
exportfs -vr
service nfs restart

Thank you Thomas! :)
