Setup: convoy nfs

robert edited this page Jun 10, 2016 · 3 revisions

Basis of that short tutorial / explanation is this online Meetup from DEC 2015.


  • running rancher-server + hosts

things you'll need (mentioned in the meetup):

you need three parameters to instal convoy-nfs on the already installed nfs-server

  • mount dir
  • nfs server (ip or hostname)
  • mount options

the mount dir is not /exports but / (in nfs4)

  • mount_dir: /
  • nfs_server: xx.xx.xx.xx

and you need to specify the nfs version (nfsvers=4)

  • mount_opts: proto=tcp,port=2049,nfsvers=4

without declaring nfsvers=4 you get the error that you need statd

mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified

and with /exports on nfs4 you get that error message:

mount.nfs: mounting failed, reason given by server: No such file or directory
