Ubuntu: When Does NFS Get Enabled At Boot?

+1 vote

On 13.04 I can mount NFS shares from the command line no problem, but if I try to do it at boot time from fstab, the system hangs and says it is waiting for idmapd and statd to start. This always worked in the past and works on other distros like Cent and FreeBSD.

Try adding "_netdev" to the fstab options of the nfs mounts. They'll be attempted after the network's up; and hopefully after rpc.idmapd is started. (rpc.statd isn't used by/needed for nfs4.)

I'm using nfs and not nfs4 on Ubuntu but AFAIK there's an upstart job to ensure that idmapd is started before an nfs4 mount is attempted. You might want to file a bug report against this job if its "start on ..." statement isn't starting it when it's meant to.

I installed the NUT monitor from the Ubunut Software Center. The Ubuntu Software Center lists version 2.6.4-2.3ubuntu2 but when I look at the NUT Monitor ABOUT the program has version 1.3!

I am replacing an old computer running OS/2 as a file and print server for my home LAN with a new computer running Ubuntu. I moved the UPS serial connection from the old computer to the new one but am having problems getting UPS logging to work. When I boot the computer UPSLOG starts but is not finding the UPS so the log is full of useless data. How do I find which file starts the UPSLOG?

As a side problem it appears that the UPSLOG does not operate as the documentation describes. I added a file for the logrotate program which does rotate the log but other than that does not appear to work. When the logrotate program runs the logger stops when it gets the "kill -HUP" signal instead of continuing with the new log file.

I have read the readme file but there is not much about installation. I have looked at some documentation on the internet trying to get this installed but the documentation does not match the configuration files I have on my system. Anyone know where I can find documentation that matches the version I have?

I'm facing some trouble setting up a 13.04 server (amd64) which I want to use Ethernet bonding and NFS mounted volumes.

I've read the ubuntu tutorial about Ethernet bonding but seems the machine try to mount NFS volumes BEFORE the network comes up , the result is the volumes are not mounted at boot up.

Please help.

Ubuntu 13.04 (Gnome) is telling me that my /boot partition on (/dev/sda1) is 96% full.

Is the best option to boot from Knoppix & resize the partition or is it safe to delete all the old kernels to free up the space? If I can safely delete the kernels, what's the best way to go about it?
