Problems with NFS

Hi,
I have problems with a HP-UX 11.0 server , when I`ll try "ls -la" the next message appears "NFS server xxxxxx not responding still trying".
I don??t know what is the problem because I don??t have the NFS configured, I need to install applications and I don??t know if this problem is going to affect.
Could anyone help me?
Thanks,
Marta

Re: Problems with NFS

Hi

you need to login into the server and edit /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf file. change variable NFS_SERVER=1 TO =0. Now issue command /etc/init.d/nfs.server stop

Re: Problems with NFS

Also make sure that automounter is not active:
ps -ef | grep auto
If active, turn it of by /etc/rc.config.d/auto* setting its variable from 1 to 0 and try the stop command.

Also have a look at /etc/exports but the answer form John Carr and looking similar for automounter should be more than enough to solve your problem.

Re: Problems with NFS

Hi Just do following.

1. Login to your machine and execute following commands

#/sbin/init.d/nfs.client stop

Then edit the /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf

and change the entries for as per folloinf

NFS_SERVER=0 (if it is 1)
NFS_CLIENT=0 (If itis 1)

You do not have to do anything on NFS server as server might be serving other clients.

Thanks,

Re: Problems with NFS

Hi,
Thanks for all your answers but it is possible that yesterday I didn??t word correctly.
I really need the nfs service active, because I have to use the mount daemon nfs_mountd to mount the cdrom,for example, the problem is that I don??t know what is the reason for the message "NFS server hostname not responding still trying".
The problem began when I??ll try to mount the cdrom, as follows:

# /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &
[1] 1495
# /usr/sbin/pfsd &
[2] 1497
# /usr/sbin/pfs_mount /cdrom
/usr/sbin/pfs_mount: pfs_mountd at hostname:/dev/dsk/c3t2d0 not responding: : RPC:
Timed out
/usr/sbin/pfs_mount: retrying /cdrom
/usr/sbin/pfs_mount: giving up on /cdrom
# NFS server hostname not responding still trying
NFS server hostname not responding still trying
NFS server hostname not responding still trying

Other times, I have been able to mount the cdrom without this problem, but when I??ll try to execute anything from the CD, the message comes out.
Has anybody an idea?
Thanks in advanced,
Marta

Re: Problems with NFS

Marta-

Have you confirmed that the cabling, power, termination, etc are all intact and working? That's a good place to start.

Re: Problems with NFS

Hi:

/usr/sbin/pfs_mount: retrying /cdrom
/usr/sbin/pfs_mount: giving up on /cdrom

These messages indicate that your cdrom may not have the compatible protocol. Did you try a different using different cdrom?

Re: Problems with NFS

Hi
Check for any already running pfs daemons, kill them and restart the pfs daemons.

Thanks.

Take it as it comes.

Re: Problems with NFS

Hi Marta,

Here is the solution for your issue :
First stop the already started pfs daemons and then execute the following commands :


# nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &
# nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd &

Now you can mount your Oracle cdrom without any NFS problem.
