Thread: nfs problems
March 30th, 2006, 12:53 PM #1
my goal was getting a media server setup, that I can have all my videos, movies, music, pictures, etc on, that any computer on my network can access and play the files over the network, that way I dont have to have the files locally and take up harddrive space on each system. I'm trying to mount the network drive on each client system using nfs.
the majority of the files that I'm going to move over are on my main system, which is running the 64bit edition of kubuntu. the box that I'm making the media server is running a server installation of ubuntu (no gui, base packages, etc).
on both boxes I have nfs-kernel-server and portmap packages installed.
on the server box I have edit the /etc/exports file to look like this:
noah@scarlett:~$ more /etc/exports # /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported # to NFS clients. See exports(5). /home/noah/media 192.168.1.103(rw)
I have edit my /etc/fstab on the client box to look like this:
noah@lindsay:~$ more /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/sda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro,atime,auto,rw,dev,exec,suid,nouser 0 1 /dev/sda5 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/hda /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0 /dev/hdb /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto ,atime,noauto,rw,dev,exec,suid,user 0 0 /dev/sdb1 /mnt/storage ext3 ,atime,auto,rw,nodev,noexec,nosuid,nouser 0 0 /dev/sdc /mnt/usb vfat ,uid=1000,gid=0,noauto,rw,nouser 0 0 192.168.1.110:/home/noah/media /mnt/media nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr
noah@lindsay:~$ sudo mount -a Password: noah@lindsay:~$ mount /dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro) proc on /proc type proc (rw) sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw) devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620) tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw) usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw) tmpfs on /lib/modules/2.6.12-10-amd64-generic/volatile type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755) /dev/sdb1 on /mnt/storage type ext3 (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) tmpfs on /dev type tmpfs (rw,size=10M,mode=0755) 192.168.1.110:/home/noah/media on /mnt/media type nfs (rw,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr,addr=192.168.1.110)
after I try to copy (whether through konsole or konqueror) and it is sitting there stalled, I can no longer cd into my /mnt directory (the nfs drive is mounted at /mnt/media), but I can type in the full extention of my local harddrive mounted at /mnt/storage and access it fine, but if i try to go to just /mnt it stalls and never displays.
in order to gain access back to the mounted drive I have to reboot the client side (the server side still seems to remain functional), on which the drive is remounted and I can then navigate through the drive, make directories, and remove directories again, but if I try and copy a file, the same thing happens. any ideas?"There are only 10 kinds of people in the world, those that can read binary, and those that cannot."

thought I had fixed it but for large files it only copies part of it then hangs.
it seems that I've fixed it by just playing around. my wsize and rsize variable were to much for my network to handle I guess, backed them down to 1024 and it seems to be working fine now.
