OpenSUSE Network :: 11.3 NFS Server - Clients Cannot ConnectJan 2, 2011
Upgraded two machines to 11.3 in the past 2 weeks. NFS is broken on both, in different ways. The problem I'll mention here is that the nfs server is running, but clients can't connect.
The server is running:
tinderbox:~ # /etc/init.d/nfsserver status
Checking for kernel based NFS server: idmapd running
It has a valid export list:
tinderbox:~ # showmount -e
Export list for tinderbox:
The export exists:
tinderbox:~ # ls -lR /usr/local/share/
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 Jan 2 12:10 common
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 2 12:10 test.txt
But attempts to mount the export are unsuccessful, both from the local machine:
tinderbox:~ # mount.nfs 126.96.36.199:/usr/local/share/common /mnt -v
mount.nfs: timeout set for Sun Jan 2 12:14:19 2011
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'addr=188.8.131.52,vers=4,clientaddr=192.168.1.200'
mount.nfs: mount(2): Connection timed out
mount.nfs: Connection timed out
...and from an OpenSUSE 11.0 machine.
moira:~ # mount.nfs 184.108.40.206:/usr/local/share/common /mnt/tmp/ -v
mount.nfs: timeout set for Sun Jan 2 11:52:17 2011
mount.nfs: text-based options: 'addr=220.127.116.11'
mount.nfs: Unable to connect to 18.104.22.168:111, errno 110 (Connection timed out)
mount.nfs: mount to NFS server 'rpcbind' failed: timed out, giving up
I've had NFS running on my local network for over a decade, and never had problems like this before.
