Mac OS X 10.8.2
I've recently upgraded to OS X 10.8.2 and am having great difficulty in mounting my NFS shares via the OSX GUI. This worked fine at OS X 10.6.
My aim is to provide an automount type of setup so that less experienced users don't have to worry about the command line.
Can someone please point me in the right direction here?
This is what I've tried to date.
My NFS service is hosted on my Debian server. It supports NFS v4. The service is working and stable and is used routinely with Ubuntu clients. It has also worked with OS X 10.6 clients in the past, but not with OS X 10.7 clients.
To date I have tried the following options:
- Mount via finder: Connect to server option using syntax: nfs://<user>@<server>/<share>
- setting up autofs using the instructions from pmbuko
- using the command line to mount the share.
The first option failed repeatedly. I did find that it would eventually work, though only after I'd manually mounted the share at the command line.
I have not been able to get the second option to work.
- I initiate autofs using the command 'automount -vc' and see that the connection is recognised
- when I attempt to cd into a directory below the mount point, I eventually get the message 'Connection Refused'.
- when I check my Debian logs, I find that the NFS service had actually received an authenticated mount request from the Mac.
- when I check my Mac Console logs, I see an error:
- kernel: nfs_connect: socket error 61 for <server>/<share>
I was able to get the third option working, but only after using the '-o resvport' option.
'Something' does appear to be broken with OS X 10.8.2 as an NFS client.
