NFS share mapping problem

Post by dajashby » Sat Jan 05, 2008 4:33

I have a ubuntu gutsy gibbon server that exports a couple of shares. I have a pc I have just recently set up with Sabayon Linux (3.4F), and I'm trying to connect to the server from it. I am able to mount a share from the command line:

Code: Select all

sudo mount roland:/home/dajashby /media/dajashby 
but when I try setting up an fstab mount I get a Permission denied error:

Code: Select all

roland:/home/dajashby  /media/dajashby nfs rw,hard,intr 0 0

Given that the share will mount from the command line, clearly the server setup is functional. The exports file contains the line:

Code: Select all

/home/dajashby mithrandir(rw,sync,no_root_squash)
If I select Storage Media from the System Menu, the share is still shown as unmounted, despite the fact that I can navigate to folders on the share using the command line.

Both the client and server are listed in the hosts file for each machine, although I should say that the IPs are assigned by DHCP (I can ping both machines from the other by name).

Anyone have a clue what might be going on here?

The gentoo wiki has this very well documented
