Ubuntu: How to reenable expired root account?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 9, 2008
Running Ubuntu 8.04.
Had a password assigned to root at one time. Disabled it using the command $sudo passwd -l root
Wanted to log in as root again, tried sudo su and got the message "Your account has expired; please contact your system administrator.
su: user account has expired"
Tried re-enabling using the command $sudo passwd root
It accepted the password change but still won't let me log in as root. I get the same error message about account expiring.
Any idea how to fix this?

Installing ubuntu on / mount without deleting /home mount
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 24, 2012
For reasons I won't go into I'm wanting to re-install 12.04 32 bit as a stand alone system on a hard drive that is already partitioned with a separate boot partition (/boot) file system (/) and home partition (/home). Is there a way I can just re-install the ubuntu operating system on the / partition while not erasing all my files on the /home partition?
3.0.0 Can't mount NFS shares
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 14, 2011
I've just updated to the 3.0.0 kernel, and after rebooting it seems that I'm unable to mount any of my NFS shares.
I've attached a copy of my boot.log file which mentions a few errors in it.
If I try and mount the shares manually from a terminal screen (after login), it returns me straight back to command prompt (without any errors/messages - like you'd see see with a successful execution) but the shares still won't mount.
I've just rebooted back into kernel 2.6.39-3, and everything is working again.
Just curious if anybody else has run into similar problems?
FWIW ... the relevant parts of my /etc/fstab file are:
192.168.1.16:/STORAGE /media/ZFS nfs rsize=4096,wsize=4096,timeo=14,intr
192.168.1.16:/SYSTEM /media/ZFS/backups nfs nfsvers=3,rsize=4096,wsize=4096,timeo=14,intr
unable to mount nfs directories on client
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 28, 2011
I have resently upgraded my server to ubuntu 11.10. I have setup NFS on the server and I have followed this walkthrough: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Se...o#NFSv4_server
When I go to mount the directories on the client I keep get mount.nfs4: Connection timed out
I have Webmin setup to configure the server and when I apply the changes to the NFS exports I get the following:
rpc.nfsd: no process found
* Stopping NFS kernel daemon
* Unexporting directories for NFS kernel daemon...
* Exporting directories for NFS kernel daemon...
exportfs: No options for o NFS: suggest NFS(sync) to avoid warning
exportfs: /etc/exports : Neither 'subtree_check' or 'no_subtree_check' specified for export "NFS".
Assuming default behaviour ('no_subtree_check').
NOTE: this default has changed since nfs-utils version 1.0.x

I just got an Iomega Network Harddrive. When one tries to make new files, one is given the option of the file type. It seems CIFS is the default. When I try to mount the file with
sudo mount -t cifs -o username=guest, password=guest //IP.IP/file /media/nfs
it works to a certain degree. I can read and write only with using sudo.
I've tried to mount the file using nfs (and also trying to find solutions).
sudo mount IP.IP/file /media/nfs
I've done this because those were possible solutions I had found online. What strikes me is that nowhere do I need to input my name and password, which I guess was necessary in the first case.
Any pointers would be great
Allow user to mount nfs filesystem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 8, 2011
I configured a network server, and I want the users of the other machines, which have accounts in my server, to mount their home directories in the server. I managed to do everything, except that for the moment I can only mount their home directories by being the superuser of the server, a privilege that I don't want to give to the users. Also, I don't want their home directories to be mounted automatically. Thus, from a "normal" filesystem share, I want to:
1-The home directories of user in other machines be mountable in the user areas of the server (I can do that already).
2-I want that the users be able to mount by hand their directories, so that the directories are not permanently mounted. Currently, I can only mount and umount being the superuser of the server. I don't want to give superuser privileges to all server users.
3-I don't want their directories to be mounted on startup (otherwise I could simply add the mounts to /etc/fstab).
Thus, does anyone know
