Can't cleanly start NFS.

Post by raid517 » Mon Oct 02, 2006 1:40 am

OK I'm having no luck at all with networking. I don't seem to be able to cleanly start NFS. I emerged NFS utils and did the following:

Code: Select all

 # exportfs -ra

   /etc/init.d/nfs start
 * Starting idmapd...                                                     [ !! ]

 * Exporting NFS directories...                                           [ ok ]
 * Starting NFS daemon...                                                 [ ok ]
 * Starting NFS mountd...                                                 [ ok ]
So it seems idmapd has failed to start. (Or at least I assume that's what the exclamation marks mean?)

Has anyone any clue what might be going on?

You said you just emerge nfs-utils and then tried to start nfs; is there nfs server support in your kernel?

idmapd did fail to start, but I would need more information before I could diagnose it. Try restarting it and then post the results of the follwing command:

dmesg | tail
