    RPC: Program not registered


    Hello All,

    I am after some help, probably something very simple, I am trying to mount a disk on a remote computer using the following command

    mount vecfs:/shrek /shrek

    Where vecfs is the remote computer and /shrek is the file system.

    I keep getting a message back saying mount: RPC: Program not registered

    I am running RedHat 9

    Any advice or suggestions?

    Thanks in Advance

    Try using the ip address instead of the machine name then it should work.

    what type of share are you trying to mount?

    a SAMBA(windows) share? or NFS? other?

    Have you checked if kernel is NFS enabled? And the NFS is running.

    I am quite new to all of this!!!

    I have two RedHat 9 machines which are connected to a 8 port switch, there is nothing else on the switch. On one of the machines there is a 250GB Software RAID which is mounted as /shrek

    I would like to mount that disk array on to the other RedHat machine (vectayn2) but I keep getting the RPC message.

    Both machines are in eachothers hosts files and I have also added the whole batch of IP addresses to the /etc/hosts.allow file on the machine with /shrek (vecfs) on it.

    I should let you know that I am using IP addresses of 10.0.0.* with a netmask of 255.255.255.0 (I am not sure if that makes a difference)

    Thanks in advance

    First you need to install an NFS sever on vecfs then setup an NFS client on vectayn2. You will also need to have Kernels that support NFS on both machines. I think i read a tut on tldp on setting up NFS but i cant find it. And a tut here on how to compile a Kernel it is a bit long but explains alot so its worth reading IMO.

    Thanks for the advice, I have now mounted the File System, it seem that alough the rpc service had started the nfs service hadn't.

    Thanks again for the advice
