 RE: FBSD -> Linux NFS exports
Author: Guy Manaugh

I had this same problem.

The Linux NFS server does not support NFS Version 3 (see below.) mount_nfs first tries to mount the share using version 3 then it falls back to version 2. So your mount is successful, but you get an error message on the linux box.

The workaround is to add "nfsv2" to the options in your fstab, or to use the "-2" option on the command line.


(I am running Alan Cox's 'pre' kernels. The release notes for 2.2.18pre9 say that nfsv3 support has been added, but my 2.2.18pre15 kernel still doesn't support v3 mounts from my FreeBSD client. Does this work for anyone else?)
