Thread: NFS errors in /var/log/warn...

    Default NFS errors in /var/log/warn...

    I am using OpenSuSE 13.1 clients and a 12.1 NFS server (NFS4 turned off). Although the NFS shares are mounted (via fstab) and seem to work fine, I am getting lots (hundreds!) of error messages.
    Like these:
    Code:
    2014-02-28T11:05:10.755781+00:00 gzunder rpc.gssd[29740]: ERROR: can't open /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs/gssd/clntXX/info: No such file or directory

    2014-02-28T11:05:10.757723+00:00 gzunder rpc.gssd[29740]: ERROR: failed to read service info
    The path to /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs/gssd/clntXX/ is there but there is no "info" file. Should there be?
    Why is gssd (NFS4/Kerberos related?) even trying to read service info?
    There are no relevant errors at the server. Not knowing where to look, this is the only diagnosis I can think of:

    Any advice to "clean up" my config would be most welcome.

    Default Re: NFS errors in /var/log/warn...

    Recommend you start by inspecting the version of NFS running on your 13.1 and 12.1, my guess is that they will be <very> different.
    If so, try to update to as current as possible. Of course, that will likely be next to impossible on 12.1, you should strongly consider upgrading it to 13.1 as well.

    Default Re: NFS errors in /var/log/warn...

    Check /etc/nfsmount.conf, look for
    Code:
    # Defaultvers=4
    change it to
    Code:
    Defaultvers=3
    I saw this at a customer's, IIRC this stopped the messages
    - Athlon X6 3.6 GHz, 16 GB DDR3, 30 GB SSD, 3 TB of disks, GT540, openSUSE 12.2 x86_64 + KDE 4.10 + GNOME 3
    - ASUS A73SD, Intel + GT610M Optimus, 6 GB, 120 GB SSD, openSUSE Tumbleweed

    Hmmmm......
    Not sure about the logic of this approach? NFS is a standard (of sorts) the client/server versions shouldn't make any difference.
    And in fact, I see these errors on a clean 13.1 install without ever connecting to a NFS server.

    Hi Knurpht,

    Thanks for the suggestion. But no, made no difference.
