Description Andreas Proteus 2010-08-02 08:38:46 UTC
Attempting to mount an exported share gives the following errors:

On the client: 
mount.nfs: Access denied by server while mounting olethros:/mnt/library

On the server (from logs):
Aug  2 10:19:41 olethros mountd[1395]: authenticated mount request from for /mnt/library (/mnt/library)
Aug  2 10:19:41 olethros mountd[1395]: qword_eol: fflush failed: errno 2 (No such file or directory)

The /etc/exports of the server:

# /etc/exports: NFS file systems being exported.  See exports(5).
/mnt/library  *(rw,no_root_squash,async,no_subtree_check,insecure)

This goes away if downgrade to net-fs/nfs-utils-1.2.2-r1

Comment 1 Andreas Proteus 2010-08-02 09:10:59 UTC
I have discovered that net-fs/nfs-utils-1.2.2-r2 works if I restart the daemon with:

/etc/init.d/nfs restart

Please note however that upon rebooting the server the above error appears again only to go away if I manually restart the daemon.
Comment 2 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-08-02 11:05:31 UTC
Okay, -r2 is mine so I should take the pieces...

Is this with NFSv4 enabled?
Comment 3 Andreas Proteus 2010-08-02 11:13:49 UTC
nfsv4 is enabled

equery u nfs-utils

 * Found these USE flags for net-fs/nfs-utils-1.2.2-r2:
 U I
 - - caps        : Use Linux capabilities library to control privilege
 + + elibc_glibc : ELIBC setting for systems that use the GNU C library
 - - ipv6        : Adds support for IP version 6
 - - kerberos    : Adds kerberos support
 - + nfsv3       : Enable support for NFSv3
 - + nfsv4       : Enable support for NFSv4
 + + tcpd        : Adds support for TCP wrappers
Comment 4 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-08-02 11:20:50 UTC
Okay... are you actually using it or was just the default? Because -r2 should only be fixing a couple of things for nfsv4+kerberos (which is not the case for you), while there is an actual possible trouble with the init script that was reported as bug #330795 but that shouldn't hit you since you don't have sec=sys...
Comment 5 Andreas Proteus 2010-08-02 12:05:25 UTC
(In reply to comment #4)
I tried: 

#export USE="-nfsv4"
#emerge nfs-utils

The problem is still there:

Aug  2 14:52:42 olethros mountd[1376]: authenticated mount request from for /mnt/library (/mnt/library)
Aug  2 14:52:42 olethros mountd[1376]: qword_eol: fflush failed: errno 2 (No such file or directory)

#/etc/init.d/nfs restart

mounts ok, no error.

Comment 6 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-08-02 12:08:05 UTC
And you say -r1 does not do that, after a reboot? Now that's strange because it has changed nothing between the two beside nfsv4.
Comment 7 Andreas Proteus 2010-08-02 14:27:05 UTC
(In reply to comment #6)
I had another look and it appears that -r1 suffers from the same problem.

When I filed the bug report, after downgrading -r1 I restarted nfs manually (no reboot) and it worked. 
I erroneously assumed that -r1 it was doing the right thing and -r2 had the problem. My apologies.

To sum up:

When the system starts, although the exports appear to be available (showmount -e), the clients are unable to mount them, and the server reports an error as shown above.

If nfs is restarted manualy (/etc/init.d/nfs restart) the problem goes away.

The same happens with "/etc/init.d/nfs reload" or even with "exportfs -r".

For the time being I circumvent this problem by adding the line:

/usr/sbin/exportfs -r

to /etc/conf.d/local.start

lastly, upon issuing: exportfs -r,  it gives the curious error msg:

exportfs: Warning: /mnt/library does not support NFS export

But the exports are there and are mountable! 

Issuing exportfs -r for a second time  there is no warning and everything is ok.

Comment 8 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-08-02 14:41:19 UTC
Reassigning then.

/mnt/library uses which filesystem?
Comment 9 Andreas Proteus 2010-08-02 14:53:32 UTC
From mtab:
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt/library type ext3 (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime)
Comment 10 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-08-02 14:56:43 UTC
Okay so "exportfs: Warning: /mnt/library does not support NFS export" is definitely wrong ^^;;
Comment 11 Andreas Proteus 2010-08-02 18:44:36 UTC
(In reply to comment #10)
Yes, its wrong but it appears to cause no harm and in spite of the warning the share can be mounted by the clients.

It may be an indication as to what is causing this problem.
Comment 12 Andreas Proteus 2010-08-02 18:56:46 UTC
This problem is not unknown.

They do not offer any clues though. :-(
Comment 13 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2010-10-08 19:51:14 UTC
nfs-utils-1.2.3 now in the tree if you want to retest
