Knoppix gPXE nfs mount
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 27, 2009
Knoppix 5.1 cd booted and started Knoppix terminal server.
Remote machine gPXE boot. Gets tftp, dhcp and starts to load knoppix. Gets to penguin, I forget how many more lines and then says.
Trying to mount cd on 192.168.x.x:/cdrom.....Failed
Please enter the nfs diretory path (gives example) and waits.
I know that the cd works with a newer system on PXE. gPXE should work I'd think as it does seem to get both boot files.
Could it be that the gpxe computer has some oddity on bios for the support of cdrom?
Any other ideas on how nfs is failing to be found.
VirtualBox: how to NFS mount in Knoppix guest from Slackware host?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 11, 2010
I'm setting up Slackware64 13.1 as a guest on a Slackware64 13.1 host running VirtualBox 3.2.8 PUEL and want to begin by replicating the host's / to the guest.
The idea was to NFS export / from the host, boot Knoppix 6.2, NFS mount in the guest and copy the files but I haven't been able to NFS mount under Knoppix.
At first I tried with NAT networking but NFS is mentioned in the VirtualBox User Guide in the NAT limitations section so I switched to bridged networking. After mounting / did not work, I switched to mounting /home/c/d which is "known good" -- regularly used for syncing with my netbook
On the guest, running Knoppix, networking seems OK. It uses DHCP. I can browse and traceroute LQ by name. ifconfig shows 192.168.168.201 and a 255.255.255.0 netmask. The host has a static IP configuration, 192.168.168.7/24 (confirmed). mount -t nfs 192.168.168.7:/home/c/d /mnt eventually gives "mount system call failed". The -o nfsvers=3 option
Cannot copy files > 2 GB to NFS mount on Ubuntu 12.04 server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 30, 2013
My "server" is really just an overgrown hard drive used for backup. It has 3 x 1 TB and 1 x 2 TB individual drives - no RAID. All are accessible via NFS, Samba and SSH.
The machine has run Ubuntu 8.04 and 10.04 just fine for many years. Recently I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 (yes I know I should reinstall rather than upgrade but I may be doing that or decommissioning in near future so I said what the heck). The upgrade seemed to work fine.
Today I noticed that I could not copy a file > 2 GTB to the sever via NFS. I get the message "Error writing file: File too large." I observed this in Gnome Commander and Nautilus on my CentOS 6 workstation. Here are some of the key configuration files.

[SOLVED] NFS mount Error: "System Error: Connection refused"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 16, 2010
Hi, Greetings !
I am trying to nfs mount a directory from my server on another workstation and it is throwing up the following error.
mount: mount to NFS server 'craycx1' failed: System Error: Connection refused.
I edited /etc/exports file on the server with correct syntax and there is nothing in /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny.
I am able to ssh from client to server and vice versa successfully.
rcpinfo indicates that NFS server is running..
Please suggest me whatelse can be wrong ?
Thanks in advance for your time and support.

I have set up an NFS server and an NFS client but I am unable to mount the server shares from the client.
There is no DNS set up but both have the same /etc/hosts file and the 'user' has the same id on both machines.
Using 'showmount -e' from the client gives the following results
sudo showmount -e serverip
Export list for serverip:
This is my attempt to mount the NFS share
sudo mount -v serveripaddress:/home/user /home/user
mount: no type was given - I'll assume nfs because of the colon
mount.nfs: timeout set for Sun Sep 8 11:04:52 2013
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4,addr=serveripaddress,clientaddr=clientipad dress'
mount.nfs: mount(2): Permission denied
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting serveripaddress:/home/user
However 'showmount -a' and 'showmount -d' do not produce any results.
If I run 'host clientip'
NFS mount rw permission problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 18, 2013
I am mounting a directory from one linux server (which runs Centos) to my local ubuntu machine. A NFS server is running on the server machine and in /etc/exports I am setting the permission as (rw,sync). On my local computer I have the reading access to the directory content, however, I am not able to write to it. E.g., by touching a file "123.txt" in the mounted directory, I get the following response:
touch: cannot touch `123': Permission denied
I am totally a newbie and please kindly help me with some solution or guidance.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Having some problems with NFS on 11.10 64bit ubuntu-server.
I have exported a share on a file server and have 6 (virtualised, cloned) web servers attempting to mount.
4 servers mount the NFS ok, however the last 2 give the error:
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting
The fstab etc. on each of the 6 servers are identical (they are clones), however only 4 can connect at once?? is there a limit?
/etc/exports on fileserver:
fstab on each web server:
192.168.0.10:/u0/share /share nfs vers=3,_netdev,user,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr 0 0
Baffling me how most servers can mount, but some cannot, even when they are all identical (apart from IP address).
NFS mount hangs
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 13, 2006
Working with Fedora Core 6 on server and Ubuntu 6.0.6 on client, I want
to mount --via NFS-- a directory on the client from the server.
mount -o nfsvers=2 myserver:/home/foo /home/user/myserver-foo -o nfsvers=2
But it hangs 120 seconds before mounting it, and it's not very comfortable.
Does anyone know what it's happening?
I stopped iptables on server and with FC2 as client it works ok.
Thank you very much.

as part of my cisco course @ my local college i've started delving into the
world of linux as an extra curicular activity by having redhat 9.0 installed
on the pc i use in class.
having read an article about thin clients/diskless nodes and visiting the
www.ltsp.org i set about setting up the workstation accordingly by
downloading source files and compiling them. i had a few minor hiccups
nothing i couldn't resolve. earlier this week i managed to sucessfully get
my first diskless node working, initially in runlevel 3, then 4 and finally
my next step was to attach a second node to the hub. despite having
configured the server i cannot get a second host to mount the NFS.
everything appears to be working correctly, the MAC address of NIC is
acknowledged by DHCP and IP address is assigned (192.168.0.2) which can be
ping'ed from server (192.168.0.254) and the first node (192.168.0.1), and
the kernel is loaded via TFTP until that is the NFS is mounted when i ge
