I updated to Oneiric a few days ago and my nfs shares will not connect as they always have with Natty on this and other computers on my network.

The error message is:

mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified

So i did a clean install, copying in the fstab etc that worked on Natty on this box, but get the same error. No auto mount on boot, and when i do for example sudo mount /nas/mydocs

Have tried -o nolock with no success

fstab has lines like this, all working before upgrade /home/john/nas/mydocs nfs rw,auto

sudo start statd
start: Job is already running: statd

Try adding the nfsvers=3 parameter in fstab. /home/john/nas/mydocs nfs rw,auto,nfsvers=3 – enedene Dec 5 '11 at 21:08
