I have a CentOS 6 NFS server, which dirves me crazy.
The directory I try to export cant be accessed by different clients.
I tried a CentOS 7, CentOS 6 and a pool of vmware esxi 5.5 systems.
At the client side I get errors like:
mount.nfs: Stale file handle
or Sysinfo set operation VSI_MODULE_NODE_mount failed with the tatus Unable to query remote mount point‘s attributes.
On the server I get messages in the log like
svc: 172.17.252.35, port=851: unknown version (0 for prog 100003, nfsd)
rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from ….
The curious thing is, that other directories exported on the same filesysten can be exported.
so /home/stuff works /home/students fails. chmode 777 is set,
/etc/exports is double checked. nfs/rpc/etc is up and running. selinux &
firewall for debugging off.
I use xfs on all shared filesystems.
Googling for VMWARE and native NFS suggestions did not help so far :-/
Any hint or suggestion is very very welcome! Regard & thanks . Götz
