I have a problem mounting certain directories from a local NFS server.
The server is called darkwatch.vorpal.com, and I get
root@packrat# mount darkwatch:/usr /mnt
root@packrat# umount /mnt
root@packrat# mount darkwatch:/local/home/flipk /mnt
nfs: can't access /local/home/flipk: Permission denied
types of errors.
darkwatch's /etc/exports file contains:
/local/home -alldirs blade.vorpal.com minion.vorpal.com packrat.vorpal.com
/usr -alldirs blade.vorpal.com minion.vorpal.com packrat.vorpal.com
which should be correct. I tried swapping the order of the entries (/usr
used to be listed first) but still no go.
This has been going on for some time, but this is the first time I've had a
chance to dig into it.
Has anyone else seen this sort of problem? Since I can mount /usr, it bothers
me that I can't mount /local/home as well.
