I set my ubuntu desktop up with LVM2. I don't know if that is contributing to the issue or whether I have forgotten something.
When I try to mount the external filesystem with this command:
sudo mount -t ext4 192.168.1.2:/media/backup/sorted /home/stuart/home-nfs
over the network I get the following ouput:
mount: special device 192.168.1.2:/media/backup/sorted does not exist stuart@stu-hp:~$ edit test.txt
However, running the following code works, so I know that it is 'there'.
stuart@stu-hp:~$ scp test.txt 192.168.1.2:/media/backup/sorted firstname.lastname@example.org's password: test.txt 100% 11 0.0KB/s 00:00
/etc/exports file on the nfs (Centos 6) server looks like so:
I get the following output when I manually stop and start the nfs service:
[root@tower backup]# service nfs stop Shutting down NFS daemon: [ OK ] Shutting down NFS mountd: [ OK ] Shutting down NFS quotas: [ OK ] Shutting down NFS services: [ OK ] [root@tower backup]# service nfs start Starting NFS services: [ OK ] Starting NFS quotas: [ OK ] Starting NFS mountd: [ OK ] Stopping RPC idmapd: [ OK ] Starting RPC idmapd: [ OK ] Starting NFS daemon: [ OK ]
What am I missing?
