I tried installing nfs-common on a Ubuntu 10.04 and on a Ubuntu Server 11.04 machines like this:
sudo apt-get install nfs-common
/etc/init.d/nfs-common script does not get created. Also, the
rpc.idmapd daemon did not start because of the
/var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs/nfs directory missing.
I created the directory in question and
idmapd now runs, but when I try to mount an NFS4 filesystem, the UID/GIDs do not get mapped correctly (they get mapped to
4294967294:4294967294), which means that there is a problem with
idmapd, but the daemon is running and the configuration on both the server and the client is identical (in
I read that there was a "solved" bug with
/etc/init.d/nfs-common not being created, but I am experiencing the issues still on Ubuntu 10.04 and Ubuntu Server 11.04. Does anyone have a solution?
