Fedora Servers :: Mounting NFS Share On Newly Created Directory Failed
Mar 12, 2010
Running NFS on Fedora 10. Exports fine. I tested it locally. I tested the NFS configuration by trying to access the exported directory from my local machine, before testing it from a remote machine. While logged in as root, I created a new directory "/mnt/nfstest".
Then I mounted the NFS share at the new directory I created:
[root@eric root]# mount -t nfs localhost:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest
When I tried to mount on the remote client:
[root@frank root]# mount -t nfs eric:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest
After a while I got:
# mount eric:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest
mount.nfs: mount system call failed
I tried strace but wasn't sure what I was looking for, but I've attached the results as a .odt file.
The question is, as far as I know Ubuntu distro adds a user created with useradd to supplementary groups automatically. For instance, I want to enable sudo for all newly created users on my LiveCD and want them to be added to the group 'wheel' on creation. I'm sure it is possible to do it in Fedora, but how?
I can not use nfs from F10 client to F12 server. nfs mount on F10 to F12 times out anf nfs4 mount gives "mount.nfs4: mounting localhost:/home failed, reason given by server: No such file or directory" I have tried to close firewall and set selinux to permissive mode on both client and server with same result. Samba works fine. On server [root@flokipal ~]# mount -t nfs4 localhost:/home /media/tonlist mount.nfs4: mounting localhost:/home failed, reason given by server: No such file or directory
[root@flokipal ~]# mount -t nfs localhost:/home /media/tonlist [root@flokipal ~]#
Setting of my NFS as following and I am failed to mount client and get connected the both computer using Fedora 11; server ~(tower) and client (note book)
NFS Server setting ... root@tomcat shylock_1]# cat /etc/sysconfig/iptables # Firewall configuration written by system-config-firewall # Manual customization of this file is not recommended. *filter .....
Please make note selinux demon has been disabled.
On Client Side: file : /etc/exports EMPTY file : /etc/hosts.allow EMPTY file :/etc/hosts.deny EMPTY [root@eagle shylock_1]# cat /etc/sysconfig/iptables # Firewall configuration written by system-config-firewall # Manual customization of this file is not recommended. *filter .....
After making several attempt I cannot mount share on client. What I am missing here? OR is there problem with F11 with NFS server? While throwing everything including sink... I ran tcpdump on server while issuing mount command from client; I got following tcp dump.
I've to make a Windows 2000 share on my Server Linux CentOS 5.1 with all the updates installed with yum. I've a directory on a Windows 2000 that contains some images for a catalogue. I have my internet site on CentOS 5.1 with a Apache - Mysql - PHP web server. I have to mount my directory on a share in /mnt/catalogueimages and made a symbolic link from my /var/www/html/mysite/catimages to this samba share.
This is what I do following your guide a this link: [URL] I have placed in my /etc/fstab this line: //SERVER/C/Catalogue /mnt/catalogueimages cifs user,username=Administrator,password=,uid=apache,gid=apache 0 0 My Windows 2000 server have no password.
After that I made the symbolic link: ln -s /mnt/catalogueimages /var/www/html/mysite/catimages All it's OK.
The problem is that I can't see the images via browser. I have tried also to put some images in the directory /mnt/catalogueimages, deleting the mount point, in order to see if the problem was in apache: the images are visible via browser. Why I don't reach to see the images mounted with samba?
A few days ago I got this Ubuntu box (9.10) to connect to the Windows network in our house. Sharing printers and files. Life was good. But today, Places > Network > Workgroup tries to connect for about a minute then I get a "Unable to mount locations, Failed to retrieve share list from server" error. The only thing I recall changing at around the same time was adding Wine.
I'm trying to setup a Samba network share with a Fedora Directory Server backend. This will be used primarily for Windows users to authenticate before accessing the share. I am using Fedora Core 10 and have all of the latest updates installed. When I try to connect from a Windows machine, I am prompted for a username and password. I enter the username and password of the account I created in Fedora Directory Server in OU=People. The credentials are rejected. At the same time in the log file I see this:
[2009/02/24 16:50:16, 3] auth/auth_sam.c:check_sam_security(282) check_sam_security: Couldn't find user 'Administrator' in passdb. [2009/02/24 16:50:16, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(318) check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user [Administrator] -> [Administrator] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER
Administrator is the user I created in Fedora Directory Server. If I perform an ldapsearch it will find the user as uid: Administrator so I know it is able to be looked up in FDS. But I'm guessing that's not the problem.
I've mucked through and figured out how to mount a windows share. I can access the folders I was looking for, but the windows share was not what I thought it would be. I was looking for the specific shared folder. Instead I got a root level parent directory that included the folder I wanted, and a couple others.
smbclient -L <ipaddress> gives me a parent directory on the root
First question: Can I mount a specific folder within a share? Second question: Could somebody define share? I thought it was the specific shared folder, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
I installed slackware 13 to an 80gig drive on a box that also had an encrypted LVM created by Fedora. I can not seem to mount the drive from slackware even after opening the lock.
However, I cvan not boot the older fedora image due to UUID changing names. I tried to correct the UUID via a boot disk and am unable to do so. I have only read access to the 750gig fedora partition. Slackware fails mount with unknown partition type. I can see my data but not pull it off.
I have recently experienced a problem that occurred after an automatic update. After the update it said restart system. So I did and proceeded as normal. when after the reboot Firefox suddenly stopped working, crashed and upon clicking it again only a blank box appeared. Then my other apps followed and i soon couldn't do anything so i shut down my computer. Upon restart I got a black screen with tons of text and something around the lines of
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting / sys/ on root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or dirctory
So I rebooted and pressed shift to open that grub thing and booted from an earlier kernel. This time it said checking HD for errors and after booted normally. Everything seemed fine but next day it did it again. Starting with Firefox crashing and then everything else. I again booted from a previous kernel and it worked but upon checking with uname -a it did not list the kernel i chose to boot from. So I decided to upgrade 10.04 to 10.10. This upgraded my kernel and deleted the old ones so i am hoping i am good now.
Hi, I have a server at my home which is a Ubuntu 9.1 which is setup as a NFS server using NFS v3. I am also using DYN DNS to access my home server remotely from another location using SSH. Everything works good, I can sucessfully log in to my server from my laptop via SSH, however my problem mounting my NFS share which consists of appx. 300 mp3 files. My question is:
1 How Do I Tunnel a NFS share through a SSH tunnel?
2 Is there any other configuration? needed to be done to the router?
3 is there anything needed to be configured to the server or my laptop?
4 Manual mounts is fine for me I don't care about automounting.
I just want to be able to mount the NFS share via the SSH Tunnel and play my music and access other files from my server.I just need the steps to set up this connection.
We are running Oracle 10.2.04 RAC on Red Hat Linux 5 and when ever our SAN storage admin created new LUNS we have to reboot the servers so that server can see newly created LUNS. This causing downtime to our application. How we can add LUNS dynamically without rebooting servers. We are using device mapper mulitpath from red hat version 0.4.7-30.el5 and we have QLOGIC HBA's.
After upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 I have had some problems booting my Ubuntu. It all started when restarting after the upgrade, and I got the error;
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting / sys/ on root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or dirctory Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init. No init found. Try passing init= boot arg
BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:126.96.36.199ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash)(initramfs) After searching the Internet, I found a "solution". I just had to boot with a USB stick with the Ubuntu Rescue Remix (the normal Ubuntu USB won't boot either), and i wrote;
sudo fsck /dev/sdb5
Now I could start my Ubuntu again. So whats the problem? If I turn off my computer the normal way, there is no problem, but if I log off, put it into sleep mode, if something happens and I have to turn it off with the button it goes back to the first problem, and I have to reboot it with the USB stick and fix it all over again! If I don't have the USB stick with me, I probably wont be able to use my laptop!
since running update manager on my daughters net running 10.04 netbook on boot up I get the following on the screen
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or directory Target filesystem doesn�t have /sbin/init.
Doesn't seem to matter which version, every time I try to install Software raid on an Ubuntu server system, it blows up with this error. Seems I've had trouble for several versions.
mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/f35415ee-4c14-4eb1-995f-f19fbcd760c7 on /root failed: Invalid argument mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory
I've done it on Centos Fine, and followed the many different instructions I've seen for Ubuntu. The only luck I've had was with bios raid, but I would much rather let Mdadm handle things.
ubuntu-10.04.2-server-amd64 CD install AMD 1055T 6Core 4GB ram Asus M4A88TD-MUSB3
I install both as letting Ubuntu decide partitions for one drive, do the same for the other, and create a raid, and do them from scratch. No dice, same problem. I've tried that one as logical and as primary too. No difference. Something just doesn't like booting from a raid 1 Mirror. I've tried installing grub on both HDDs (sda1 + sdb1)I've tried several CDs, burned from several machines. Re-downloaded from Torrent and from the website. The DVD drives work since I purchased new DVD drives for both one workstation and the server. Things install fine under CentOS, software raid comes up.
i've written a bash script to add new users to our system. the script works so I won't bother you all about that. when a new user is created with it, they can immediately login to our domain from any terminal, which is good. However, the newly created user is unable to login to debian at all, and so cannot access the server. when attempting to do so, they get a message like "the system administrator has disabled your account". This is a good thing really as normal users have no need for debian login, but I do need to add a few admin users who will need direct access to the server machine.
This is the code I'm using to add the user. The rest of my script is just a wrapper and GUI. I figure the login shell may have something to do with it, so I tried changing the shell of a user to the default /bin/bash. This resulted in the user being able to login - sort of. Gnome doesn't load though, and there's a cascade of errors across the screen about things failing to save or load settings. mostly stuff like nautilus, X, and gnome. the desktop background is black and there's no interface. Logging in with a previously existing account works fine though. Clearly I have an issue somewhere.
I have an Intel setup with 64bit Ubuntu. I have an NVIDIA graphics card. When I used compiz, I found that my mouse would follow newly created windows. (e.g, I would bring up terminal and if I hit F1, the mouse would move to the upper right of the screen by itself. I have since turned off compiz which resolves the issue. where I can turn it off/on.
I just created a LUKS filesystem following these instructions. Everything seemed okay at first. It mounted with no problem and I moved some files there. I then unmounted it and remounted it to see if I would need to use a special command. It mounted right away and even allowed access to normal users. So, I rebooted to see if anything would change. Before I go on I should say that my partitioning scheme is weird. Not knowing any better I 'upgraded' to 11.04 when my update manager told me a new version was out. This didn't go well and I had to do a fresh install to put 10.10 back on my machine. After this the way it partitions the drive has been weird. What I had was /dev/sda1 which has my installation on it including /home. But, where it gets weird is /dev/sda2 would not manually mount. Looking at the disk in gparted it showed /dev/sda2 THEN under that, as if they were sub partitions or something, I had sda6 and sda7. I had been using 6 and 7 for various things and they mounted fine, so I decided to encrypt 7. After reboot I only have sda1. Everything else shows up as unallocated and ever way I try to mount I get device does not exist.
I only did the procedure for sda7 but 6 has been affected as well. There is no longer a sda2 the way there was before. This always bothered me anyway since I wanted sda2 for my /home but it wanted to call it sda6 and put it under sda2 like I said, I could never fix that, now this.
i am facing a problem regarding permissions. how can i set 775 permission for all newly created files and folders. when i give chmod -R 775 /data permission is getting to all files and folders. but when i create a folder i wont get that permission. i want this 755 permission should be permanent for all old and newly create files
I just want to know how the default size of a newly created file or folder is 4.0 kb.Does this value is mentioned in any configuration file,if that is the case can we edit that file and can we change this default value.
Okay, so on occasion when I boot into ubuntu I get this error
[mount: mounting /dev /root/dev failed: no such file or directory] [mount: mounting /dev /root/sys failed: no such file or directory] [mount: mounting /dev /root/proc failed: no such file or directory]
I get the error when I open any of the kernel versions or any recovery mode. Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop is the only OS installed on the computer, which is a Lenovo S10-3. I can eventually get it to go away, sometimes by repeatedly unplugging it and plugging it back in, and sometimes I will boot into GParted, do nothing, then restart and it will work.I have found some solutions online, but all of them involve the error happening as a result of dual booting with Windows.I have made no major system changes recently, so I can't see anything like that being the problem.
I just maked an ext4 partition by the help of gparted. Ubuntu is my only OS no dual boot. Using Ubuntu Maverick. The problem is partition must be open as root to do any work else it wont even allow me to open file,create folder,cut copy paste or anything.
CentOS 5.4 install, likewise open standard install (For active directory authentication).I have a license service which requires a license.txt be in the users home directory.The group owner for license.txt must be the same as the license service. Whenever a new domain user logs in, it creates the all the appropriate files but the group owner for license.txt is the users domain group. My current workaround seems like more effort than it's worth, is there another way to get this process solved easier/more secure?
- copy the license.txt into /etc/skel
- created a script to check for the presence of license.txt, check it's permissions and change them if necessary
- gave the domain's group sudo [nopasswd] access to the script (the script is not writable)
