[SOLVED] Cannot mount NFS drive from Ubuntu

Post by Essavant » Fri Jan 18, 2008 11:18 am

I am not able to mount my TS109Pro from my Ubuntu PC. I type in:

Code: Select all

derek@lancia:~$ sudo mount -t nfs stratos:/share/HDA_DATA/optware/Public /home/derek/movies

and it returns this:

Code: Select all

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on stratos:/share/HDA_DATA/optware/Public,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so


What gives? :? This should be really simple I think! Please help. Thanks.

I've already tried that. I just added the server name to the /etc/hosts file, correctly. The problem lies somewhere else. Any thought about using sshfs?

Hi,
I had the same problem (mount: wrong fs type ...), also on Ubuntu (Gutsy).
I installed the package nfs-common, now nfs works fine !
See thread :
http://forum.qnap.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2423


Hope this helps !

for troubleshooting on UNIX systems, the showmount command will
help, as well as making sure you have a command called mount_nfs,
that will tell you that you have the NFS mount capabilities.

showmount - e <server>

should show something like this:

$ showmount -e 192.168.0.142
Exports list on 192.168.0.142:
/Network Recycle Bin 1
/Public
/Qdownload
/Qmultimedia
/Qrecordings
/Qusb
/Qweb

And if the automounter is turned on you should have the
/net mount points showing up like

/net/192.168.0.142/Qweb .... etc

if you do not have the NFS package installed it will not work, but it
also ought to give you a better error message.

I found that on Macs one must use the "resvport" option, like
this example:

sudo mount -o resvport -t nfs QNAP:/Qweb /QNAP/Qweb

Have you tried to mount stratos:/Public instead of stratos:/share/HDA_DATA/optware/Public? That's what works for me on the 509

read the error message?
mount.nfs: mount point /mnt/Public does not exist <- how clear can the error be?

You need to create a Public directory in /mnt

No, I meant that the name should be 'Public' or whatever is the name you give in the mount command. If you have created /mnt/Public then your mount command should now work, and you can access the files if you go into /mnt/Public

It's a great tip as I am new in using Ubuntu.

Great job guys and I will take note of this because I might also try mounting my Ubuntu to NTFS.

FYI, Ubuntu will read/write the NTFS partition of windows fine, so whatever data is on there is also available while running ubuntu.

And indeed, you can run ubuntu in some mode that stores its data on the NTFS partition, but I'd rather keep it pure :)
