 Problems with nfs
Author: d_jab

I'm having problems mounting /usr/home from my nfs server to my nfs client.
It is one of 2 nfs file systems I'm trying to mount.

/savedisk mounts fine as a nfs drive but /usr/home spits out the error:
nfs: can't access /usr/home: Permission denied.

the /etc/exports entry for /usr/home is identical as the /savedisk entry:
/savedisk -alldirs -maproot=0 webserv
/usr/home -alldirs -maproot=0 webserv

the /etc/hosts files are identical....the empty dirs are created on the client...
/savedisk is mounting fine...
the permissions are identical from system to system...

the gateway is running nfsd and mountd, the webserver is running nfsiod....

i edited /etc/fstab to mount at boot:
gateway:/usr/home /usr/home nfs rw 0 0
gateway:/savedisk /savedisk nfs rw 0 0

i think i'm missing something...if both didn't work it would make sense, but one working and one not has me at a loss. Anyone have any ideas?

/savedisk /usr/home -alldirs -maproot=0 webserv

or just:

/usr/home -alldirs -maproot=0 webserv

to eliminate other possible problems.
