Description

  • The following document can be used as a guide to troubleshoot when you are unable to mount an NFS volume to a linux/unix client.
    • Before starting, it is important to have some basic configuration information about the environment, this will allow us to check the configuration of all items involved in the mount process.

Vserver name:
volume name - You can determine the volume if you have the junction path from the client.

For example:

if you are attempting to mount with a command similar to the following:
mount 10.61.92.47:/vol /mnt

your junction path would be  /vol
 

::> vol show -junction-path /vol

The LIF being used to mount - if you only have the IP address, the LIF information can be located by running the following command:
::> net int show -address <IP address>
