NFS Mount


This topic is based on Raspbian 2014-09-09-wheezy.img.  I already have NFS server up and running on host XENON, Windows 2012 Server Core.

If you are on new debian install, you need to do apt-get install nfs-common for client, and apt-get install nfs-kernel-server for server.

Raspbian distribution already has rpcbind, but not runnint by default, so that I should configure;

sudo updaet-rc.d rpcbind enable
sudo /etc/init.d/rpcbind start
sudo mkdir /nfs

Edit /etc/fstab, and add a line;

xenon:/nfs /nfs nfs rw,intr,vers=3 0 0

and do;

mount /nfs

"vers=3" option in /etc/fstab seems not necessary for Raspbian, however Debian wheezy 7.6 (last version for wheezy) for amd64 cause "mount.nfs system call failed" error. I discovers it come from NFSv4, that causing problem with my server running on Windows 2012 Server.
