I'm trying to set up an nfs share. The server (5.9 stable) is set up as
described in the FAQ. rpcinfo shows what it should. When I try to connect from
my laptop (current) the mount command just hangs indefinitely. However, on the
server showmount -a show my laptop is mounted. When I try to reboot the system
hangs at syncing disks. Is anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas on how to
fix this?

Thanks,

Edgar

This sounds like some kind of network connectivity issue to me. My favorite
first debug tool when working with a problem like that is tcpdump or
wireshark.

Verifying that the two machines properly talk to each other is a first step,
you should see some request/response pattern of traffic.

Often times you can see the server sending errors back with some info. You
might have to activate verbose logging ("-vvv" on tcpdump) to see this.

If this does not help you might try to supply some more info to your request
like the output of rpcinfo or any relevant log messages.

Best regards,

Didn't find the problem. However, set up nfs server on another 5.9 stable machine
and connected to it from my laptop with no problems. So I'm guessing there is a
problem with the original machine I was trying to use.

Thanks,
