When I reboot the NFS server (Ubuntu 14.04), it is not exporting the NFS shares (sudo showmount -e is empty). I have to open a terminal and manually sudo exportfs -ra. After that showmount will then display the correct information, and I am then able to mount the directory on the client, albeit manually.

Putting exportfs -ra into the global profile seems like a really hacky way to do it, and in anycase my other NFS servers (Ubuntu 12.04) don't seem to have this problem (but I did not set them up, I am just trying to integrtae this new one). Any ideas as to what could be happening? I can provide any extra info you'd like.

I have another question open over at askubuntu that may be relevant.

  • I don't run ubuntu, so this is just a guess, but is this running: service nfs-kernel-server status ? – Jeff Schaller Apr 5 '16 at 23:17
  • Yep: nfsd running – Elijah Apr 6 '16 at 14:22
