Thread: HELP! NFS mounting fails with "mount.nfs: no such device"

    Default HELP! NFS mounting fails with "mount.nfs: no such device"

    Not the first time I'm setting up NFS, and all other times I succeeded. But this time, I didn't.

    I have 2 opensuse server, one on 10.3 (the client, addr 100.2) and one one 11.1 (the server, addr 101.2). The client says "mount.nfs: no such device". More detailed:

    mount.nfs: timeout set for Wed Apr 22 15:30:20 2009
    mount.nfs: text-based options: 'addr=192.168.101.2'
    mount.nfs: trying 192.168.101.2 prog 100003 vers 3 prot TCP port 2049
    mount.nfs: trying 192.168.101.2 prog 100005 vers 3 prot UDP port 55858
    mount.nfs: text-based options: 'addr=192.168.101.2,nfsvers=3,proto=tcp,mountproto=udp'
    mount.nfs: No such device

    On the server side, nothing than quiteness in the logfiles :-( But tcpdump helps a bit:

    15:01:11.522557 IP 192.168.100.2.49886 > varg.sunrpc: UDP, length 56
    15:01:11.522746 IP varg.sunrpc > 192.168.100.2.49886: UDP, length 28
    15:02:06.038467 IP 192.168.100.2.54242 > varg.sunrpc: UDP, length 56
    15:02:06.038624 IP varg.sunrpc > 192.168.100.2.54242: UDP, length 28

    So, there is traffic and it's talking back to the client. But why is it not mounting???? I found somewhere on a website (http://www.cs.bgu.ac.il/~arik/usail/.../nfs/tips.html, under Common NFS Errors) a statement, that the message means that nfs is not configured in the kernel???

    Who can help out?

    The client is on kernel 2.6.25.5-1.1-pae.

    Just use the mount command with the following syntax:
    Code:
    mount <server>: <remote path> <local path>
    See also:
    man mount

    Fixed my own problem...

    The server was updated with a new kernel, but not rebooted yet
    So the message about nfs not being loaded into the kernel was actually right.
