Configuring NFS server on F8 not working

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have a F7 (didius) and a F8 (poirot) machine that I am trying to "cross mount" directories on.
I can mount F7 directories on the F8 machine using mount -t nfs
didius:/home/foobar /mnt/foobar
But when I try the opposite, mounting the F8 directory on F7 mount -t
nfs poirot:/home/rhombux /mnt/rhombux it fails with the message
 "mount: mount to NFS server 'poirot' failed: System Error: No route
to host."
I have tried with SELINUX and the firewall both disabled but that seems
to have no effect. The set up on each machine seems to be the same.
I've set up /etc/exports on each machine
On the F7 machine (didius)
/home/foobar            poirot(rw,sync,no_root_squash)

On the F8 machine (poirot)
/home/rhombux        didius(rw,sync,no_root_squash)

exportfs -a returns no errors.  NFS seems to be enabled

I can ping each machine from the other and I can use ssh to access each of the machines from the other.
Can anyone point me at some further diagnostics I can look at or perhaps
give me some hints about other things I can try? I had this working
when both machines were F7. I'm beginning to suspect and F8 issue but
I'm at the end of my ideas.
I'm going to be away from the machine for a while but this is driving me
further nuts and I had to ask.
