    Help : NFS on Ubuntu will not mount N5200

    Hi

    I have a N5200 with NFS enabled that I mount onto two linux machines.
    The first is running Fedora Core 6, with this in /etc/fstab

    crate:/raid/data/data /data nfs rw,tcp,soft,vers=2,nolock,rsize=8192,wsize=8192 0 0
    crate:/raid/data/cad /cad nfs rw,tcp,soft,vers=2,nolock,rsize=8192,wsize=8192 0 0[/SIZE]

    where "crate" is the N5200 device. On the fedora box this works fine.
    However, on my Ubuntu box

    victoria:~/p4/sw/core> uname -a
    Linux victoria 2.6.20-16-generic #2 SMP Wed May 23 01:46:23 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux


    I get this everytime I do mount -a

    root@victoria:/home/sam/p4/sw/core/verilog# mount -a
    mount to NFS server 'crate' failed: possible invalid protocol.
    mount to NFS server 'crate' failed: possible invalid protocol.

    Any hints you can give me? It has worked at times from this machine,
    but I think a few upgrade releases of Ubuntu have come into the machine
    and it seems to have destabilized it.

    On N5200 NFS share folder
    Hostname:*
    Privilege:Writable
    Root Access: No

    On UBUNTU
    thecus@thecus-desktop:/home$ uname -a
    Linux thecus-desktop 2.6.20-15-generic #2 SMP Sun Apr 15 07:36:31 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux

    thecus@thecus-desktop:/home$ sudo mount 172.16.66.63:/raid/data/public NFS
    thecus@thecus-desktop:/home$ df
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    .
    .
    .
    /172.16.66.63:/raid/data/public 4724199648 2230528 4673199872 1% /home/NFS
    thecus@thecus-desktop:/home$


    Seem N5200 could mount folder on UBUNTU, but first mount would take about 1 min.....

    still no go

    I guess my ubuntu distribution is wierded out. I still get the same message.
    I don't think it's a thecus problem since Fedora mounts it fine, and reliably.

    thanks for your help.
