My error is:
mount.nfs4: access denied by server while mounting fileserver:/export/path/one
My question is:
where would the detailed log information be on the server (under systemd)?
I asked a similar question from the Ubuntu client perspective on AskUbuntu. My focus in this question is on the Arch Linux server. In particular, I am looking for logs on the server that will help me understand the problem.
Here's the background:
Our small LAN is running an Arch Linux NFS v4 file server. We have several clients running Ubuntu 15.10 and 16.04. We have one client running Ubuntu 14.04. The 14.04 client will not connect to the file server. The others all connect fine. The settings are the same on all clients. And all clients are listed in /etc/exports on the server.
I need to find more detailed error information on the Arch linux server. However, journalctl does not show anything related to nfs and it does not contain any entries that are related to the nfs access denied errors.
The 14.04 client can ping the fileserver as well as log in via SSH. The user name / ID as well as group match. (I'm using the same user account / uid on both client and server. It is uid 1000.)
Even more info:
$ sudo mount -a (on client) mount.nfs4: access denied by server while mounting fileserver:/export/path/one mount.nfs4: access denied by server while mounting fileserver:/export/path/two
The client can ping the fileserver (and vice versa):
$ ping fileserver PING fileserver (192.168.1.1) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from fileserver (192.168.1.1): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.310 ms
The client successfully logs into the LAN-based fileserver:
$ ssh fileserver Last login: Tue Aug 16 14:38:26 2016 from 192.168.1.2 [me@fileserver ~]$
The fileserver's mount export and
rpcinfo are exposed to the client:
$ showmount -e fileserver # on client Export list for fileserver: /export/path/one/ 192.168.1.2 /export/path/two/ 192.168.1.2,192.168.1.3 $ rpcinfo -p fileserver (on client) program vers proto port service 100000 4 tcp 111 portmapper 100000 3 tcp 111 portmapper 100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper 100000 4 udp 111 portmapper 100000 3 udp 111 portmapper 100000 2 udp 111 portmapper 100024 1 udp 58344 status 100024 1 tcp 58561 status 100005 1 udp 20048 mountd 100005 1 tcp 20048 mountd 100005 2 udp 20048 mountd 100005 2 tcp 20048 mountd 100005 3 udp 20048 mountd 100005 3 tcp 20048 mountd 100003 4 tcp 2049 nfs 100003 4 udp 2049 nfs
This is the error when mounting the export directly:
