Operating Systems Linux Red Hat "ERROR : failed to mount nfs source" Red Hat Kickstart Post 302443195 by jaysunn on Saturday 7th of August 2010 12:24:49 PM

I just finished setting up a kickstart PXE environment.

Are you using a cdrom || floppy for the boot portion, or PXE (Pre, Execution, Environment) to start your install ?

Things to check. Are you able to mount the export share that you are exporting out via NFS on another system?

What is the contents of:


Here is what mine looks like:

[root@kickstart ~]# cat /etc/exports 
/export *(rw,sync)

Also have you recycled the NFS service on the server that is exporting out the installation tree and kickstart file?

[root@kickstart ~]# exportfs 
/export       	<world>

To confirm the share is exported.

system-config-kickstart - graphical interface for creating kickstart files SYNOPSIS
system-config-kickstart [KSFILE] DESCRIPTION
system-config-kickstart provides a simple method of creating a kickstart file that can be used to automate the installation process on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, and derived distributions. If given, the program will take its initial settings from the KSFILE provided on the command line. This allows editing of existing kick- start files. Currently, this program has some serious limitations. For example, it cannot work with LVM nor do advanced RAID and BTRFS configurations. These are supported by kickstart, but the graphical program does not provide a way to set them up nor manipulate them in existing kickstart files. OPTIONS
--help Print out program usage. --generate FILENAME Examine the system and create a kickstart file that more or less matches, writing the output to FILENAME. --display DISPLAY# Specify the X display to use. EXAMPLES
To run the program type: system-config-kickstart REPORTING BUGS
