Either I do not reboot the router or I figure out what the GUI does differently from the cmdline scripts :)

Try this:

Code: Select all

/etc/init.d/nfs stop
setcfg NFS Enable False
setcfg NFS Enable True
/etc/init.d/nfs start

Yay, thanks: this worked. I recreated the problem by rebooting the WDS router, tried mount (and got failure as hoped), ran the snippet and the next mount attempt was successful.
I wanted to double check by repeating the test once more but it always works now, there must be a timing issue.
For the moment, I'll add them to the crontab with a script and I'll retry in a few days.

This is puzzling: NAS is now directly connected on the same switch as the desktop and with a static IP, router and swich are not rebooted but both NAS and desktop client are hibernated during the day.
After waking up both of them, I still have the problem and the fix still is the same: restarting NFS.
