my goal was getting a media server setup, that I can have all my videos, movies, music, pictures, etc on, that any computer on my network can access and play the files over the network, that way I dont have to have the files locally and take up harddrive space on each system. I'm trying to mount the network drive on each client system using nfs.
the majority of the files that I'm going to move over are on my main system, which is running the 64bit edition of kubuntu. the box that I'm making the media server is running a server installation of ubuntu (no gui, base packages, etc).
on both boxes I have nfs-kernel-server and portmap packages installed.
on the server box I have edit the /etc/exports file to look like this:
(right now I'm only trying to get my main box (192.168.1.103) to be able to mount, I'm aware that I will need to change it to allow all the boxes on my LAN to be able to mount the drive)Code:
noah@scarlett:~$ more /etc/exports
# /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported
# to NFS clients. See exports(5).
I have edit my /etc/fstab on the client box to look like this:
I can then mount the drive as is shown here:Code:
noah@lindsay:~$ more /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

192.168.1.110:/home/noah/media /mnt/media nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr
I can now access the drive, make directories, delete directories, etc. Where I see a problem is when I try and copy a file (whether through konsole or through konqueror) it seems as if the mounted drive locks up. when trying to copy with cp in konsole it just sits there acting like its copying, and when I try and copy through konqueror the file goes to 100% extremely fast, then the speed goes to "stalled" and then it just sits at 100%.Code:
noah@lindsay:~$ sudo mount -a
/dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
tmpfs on /lib/modules/2.6.12-10-amd64-generic/volatile type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt/storage type ext3 (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
tmpfs on /dev type tmpfs (rw,size=10M,mode=0755)
192.168.1.110:/home/noah/media on /mnt/media type nfs (rw,rsize=4096,wsize=4096,timeo=14,intr,addr=192.168.1.110)
after I try to copy (whether through konsole or konqueror) and it is sitting there stalled, I can no longer cd into my /mnt directory (the nfs drive is mounted at /mnt/media), but I can type in the full extention of my local harddrive mounted at /mnt/storage and access it fine, but if i try to go to just /mnt it stalls and never displays.
in order to gain access back to the mounted drive I have to reboot the client side (the server side still seems to remain functional), on which the drive is remounted and I can then navigate through the drive, make directories, and remove directories again, but if I try and copy a file, the same thing happens. any ideas?
