NFS fails to start when machine is booted up

I am building a linux cluster and i have 2 onboard 10/100/1000baseT nic cards from intel. The problem i have is that when i start the systems up nfs gives me the error

mnt rpc:rpc program not registered

and to make the nfs work i must restart the nfs service.

along with this i must deactivate and reactivate my network cards in order for them to fucnction correctly. i am connecting the cards to an unmanaged switch. does anyone have any ideas about how to make this work correctly. any ideas would be appreciated.

Re: NFS fails to start when machine is booted up


to run nfs you need rpc.nfsd, rpc.mountd, rpc.statd and rpc.rquotad.
Do a 'chkconfig --list | grep each_of_these_services' to see if they are launched at the runlevel you use (3 or 5 if you run graphics).
If one is missing, do a 'chkconfig missing_service on', it'll be started at next boot.


You can lean only on what resists you...
