(my systems are running centos7)
I'm trying to check from the client if drives are mounted properly over NFS.
Typing the command
nfsstat -m gives me the mounts that it thinks are currently mounted, but this is no guarantee that those folders are accessible. It could just be that the nfs server was running when those folders were mounted but that the nfs server is down now.
For example if the nfs server goes down and on the client machine I type
df -h then the command will hang indefinitely. Likewise, if I try to
ls the folder I'm trying to mount then it too will hang indefinitely.
Here's an example that shows my problem
# on server systemctl start nfs-server # on client mount node1:/mnt/images /mnt/images df -h #works fine here # on server systemctl stop nfs-server # on client nfsstat -m #shows the list of nfs mounts df -h #this command will hang ls /mnt/images #this command will hang
Any suggestions on how to test if from the client side if the NSF server is running or if the NSF mounted folders are accessible would be greatly appreciated.
If I run
showmount -e on the server I get this output (note
/rv are all folders I'm trying to mount from my client machines)
/mnt/rv_output 192.168.81.0/24 /mnt/images 192.168.81.0/24 /rv 192.168.81.0/24
But I'm not interested in testing this connection on the Server, I want to test it on the client machines. If I run
showmount -e on the client I get the same output irregardless of where the nfs-server has been activated from the Server computer.
