Hi! I cannot seen to find anyone that can answer why I cannot mount / (root) via NFS on Mandrake 7.0/7.1. I have three 7.0 Machines, one with a 2.2.16 kernel , one with a recompiled kernel with CONFIG_ROOT_NFS turned on, one with the stock kernel and a 7.1 with the stock kernel. None of them let me mount / , I get (logged in as root) mount -t nfs musha:/ /mnt/misc mount: musha:/ failed, reason given by server: Permission denied I can mount any other dir, for example: (on machine hoffen ) mount -t nfs musha:/mnt/cdrom /mnt/misc or.... mount -t nfs musha:/usr/local /mnt/misc works fine, exports (on musha) looks like: / hoffen(rw,no_root_squash) hope(rw,no_root_squash) kitty(rw,no_root_squash) /mnt/cdrom hoffen(ro,no_root_squash) hope(ro,no_root_squash) kitty(ro,no_root_squash) /usr/local hoffen(rw,no_root_squash) hope(rw,no_root_squash) kitty(rw,no_root_squash) hoffen, hope, musha, and kitty are my machine names I did everything in the NFS Howto and looked over the NFS man pages and nowhere do I find a solution. I get the same results on every machine. I can mount any mount point other than / (root). Thanks!!
