Can not start NFS Server

Postby un1x » 2012/01/11 09:44:22

I am unable to start the NFS service. When starting there is no error. But the services are stopt after it. No messages at all in /var/log/messages. Same happens to rpcbind serivce. Any idea what this could be? I also tried to disable iptables. Any idea what the issue could be?

Code: Select all

[root@server1 ~]# service nfs start
[root@server1 ~]# service nfs status
rpc.svcgssd is stopped
rpc.mountd is stopped
nfsd is stopped
rpc.rquotad is stopped

[root@server1 ~]# service rpcbind start
[root@server1 ~]# service rpcbind status
rpcbind is stopped

[root@server1 ~]# cat /etc/exports
/tmp *(ro)

[root@server1 ~]# chkconfig --list | egrep '(rpcbind|nfs)'
nfs             0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
nfslock         0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
rpcbind         0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

This exact problem was on irc at the same time and was the result of editing init files on a Windows box.
If the OP is the same person, please update the forum.

I have exactly the same issue. Iptables and selinux is off.

Appreciate any help on this.
