Mount NFS under Fedora 17

To mount an nfs filesystem under fedora 17 I had to take the following steps:

  • sudo yum install nfs-utils
  • sudo service rpcbind start
  • sudo mount -o hard,intr,noatime /mnt/nas

The first step installs the needed libraries to be able to mount nfs. This is like nfs-common under debian based distris. The second step eliminates the following error:

mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use ‘-o nolock’ to keep locks local, or start statd.
mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified
