Can't figure how to make NFS work under OpenVZ
I've always used KVM or dedicated. Making a NFS server up and running was a piece of cake. Now I'm using a OpenVZ VPS and I'm having different issues.
From the OpenVZ wiki:
You will need the following software:
vzctl version 3.0.13 or higher (do vzctl --version)
kernel version 2.6.18-028test006 or higher (2.6.18-028stab* will do), or any recent RHEL5-based or 2.6.20-based kernel.
My requirements are met.
I already asked the VPS provider to load the NFS module, and she kindly did it. However, I get a time-out from my laptop (the client):
$ sudo mount IPADDRESS_OF_VPS:/home/issam/ /mnt/VPS mount.nfs: Connection timed out
IPTABLES is not the issue:
[email protected]:~$ sudo iptables -L Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Everything is allowed.
Did anyone successfully mounted an NFS server from an OpenVZ VPS?
