I am attempting to mount an NFS4 export from an Ubuntu server onto a Mac client connected to the local network. The Mac client can mount the nfs export using nfs3, however it appears unable to do so using nfs4.
The directory to be shared has been
fstab bound to
/export/share, and that directory exported via
user@<server>:~$ tail -n 2 /etc/exports /export *(insecure,no_subtree_check,rw,sync,fsid=0) /export/share *(insecure,no_subtree_check,rw,nohide,sync)
Client (Mac OS 10.11)
The client is able to see both exports from the server
Macintosh:~ user$ showmount -e <server-ip> Exports list on <server-ip>: /export/share * /export *
The client is able to mount the drive using nfs3 (onto a local mount-point
Macintosh:~ user$ sudo mount -t nfs <server-ip>:/export/share NFS/Server_Media/
or (both yield identical results)
Macintosh:~ user$ sudo mount -t nfs -o vers=3 <server-ip>:/export/share NFS/Server_Media/
Proof of nfs3 (under the NFS Parameters: vers=3)
Macintosh:~ user$ nfsstat -m /Users/user/NFS/Server_Media from <server-ip>:/export/share -- Original mount options: General mount flags: 0x0 NFS parameters: File system locations: /export/share @ <server-ip> (<server-ip>) -- Current mount parameters: General mount flags: 0x4000000 multilabel NFS parameters: vers=3,tcp,port=2049,nomntudp,hard,nointr,noresvport,negnamecache,callumnt,locks,quota,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,readahead=16,dsize=4096,nordirplus,nodumbtimr,timeo=10,maxgroups=16,acregmin=5,acregmax=60,acdirmin=5,acdirmax=60,nomutejukebox,nonfc,sec=sys File system locations: /export/share @ <server-ip> (<server-ip>) Status flags: 0x0
Export is unmounted to test nfs4
Macintosh:~ user$ sudo umount NFS/Server_Media/
Client attempts to mount nfs4

Connect to Server... operation (
k) is able to connect using nfs4 by entering into the
However, this cannot be automated without knowing the Terminal commands, and it only mounts to
/Volumes/share/, instead of the intended client mount-point.
The literature is surprisingly bare when it comes to Mac and NFS4, at least as far as I could tell. Any help with this would greatly appreciated!
