Ditto here. These boxes exporting nfs dirs are not firewalled and have no
access restrictions for other clients in the network. They work fine for all
clients except for the one running FC2. I can reboot the FC2 box into Debian
and it mounts the directories as expected. I seriously doubt that the nfs
servers are at fault.
I must say that I'm surprised that an FC2 NFS failure isn't getting much play
on this list. For me, reliable NFS is a absolute requirement. I can
understand that a "typical" single-box user could care less, but surely some
folks out there must depend on reliable networking.
Are any folks on this list using FC2 and NFS successfully?
