NFS takes too long to start
I use RedHat 9
I have a machine 'A' which exports nfs to machine 'B' only.
I have specified its ip in /etc/exports like this
Also there is a machine 'C' which exports nfs to all the machines in the network.
But the problem with these machines A & B is that they take a very large time to start up. They wait at the "Starting NFS services" for a very long time. Rest of the services start up pretty quickly.
One more thing to note is that:
When the machine B is up the NFS services on A and C doesnt take time to start! I am puzzled about this.
I need that B should start last (i.e. after A & C.)
Because B mounts A's export and C is my LDAP server :(
Please help !
