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>
