I have the latest nfsd, portmapd and mountd (running as services) and I
have them working, mounting things from various UNIX boxes etc. However,
when I try to share and mount a CD from my PC on a remote UNIX box (one
of the most useful reasons to have NFSd running on a local PC ...), I
almsot invariably get "Stale NFS file handle": Here are the specifcs:
I have mounted the CD on /d:
d: on /exports/d type system (binmode)
I have exported this:
On the remote UNIX machines, I can mount / and then cd to /exports/d and
look around without any problems whatsoever. But if I try to mount
mount -F nfs -o ro xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:/exports/d /tmp/REMCD
mount: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:/exports/d on /tmp/REMCD : Stale NFS file handle
If I mount /:
mount -F nfs -o ro xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:/exports/c /tmp/REMCD
No problem, for example. Now, in /var/adm/nfsd.log, when I try to mount
/exports/d (the CD drive), I get:
nfsd 12/09/103 14:56 fh.c 629 : Cannot stat /exports/lib
How strange! I tried making /exports/lib a symlink to /usr/lib, out of
interest. Then, I got:
nfsd 12/09/103 15:02 fh.c 629 : Cannot stat /exports/sbin
So, I added a symlink to /sbin to /exports too and then:
nfsd 12/09/103 15:19 fh.c 629 : Cannot stat /exports/tmp
and so on up to /var - same Stale handel error. After adding /var, no
more errors in /var/adm/nfsd.log but still Stale NFS handle errors on
mounting the CD drive share sirectly. No errors mounting anything else.
This is very odd. Any ideas?
