SOLVED Unit nfs.service not found, nfs-kernel-server is installed


  • Re: Unit nfs.service could not be found

    This is likely an issue outside of the FOG project, but as there was no solution or workaround in the original thread I’m hoping to uncover what is going on here.

    The package nfs-kernel-server is installed as part of installfog.sh, however just like in the linked thread, nfs.service cannot be found and the install script fails. I confirmed that nfs-kernel-server was included in the packages downloaded by the script, and even with a manual install/update (Linux says I have the latest version) the file cannot be found.

    I will keep searching for a solution outside FOG and update here if I find anything.

    EDIT: Here is the output of journalctl. Despite the ‘permission denied’ error I am running the script as root as instructed:

  • SOLUTION: If you are running in a Proxmox container, you need to a.) uncheck ‘Unprivileged’ during creation and, b.) edit the container after creation and enable both Nesting and NFS (Container > Options > Features > Edit).

    @tkrusterholz I took care of marking it as solved. Its in the tutorial section but I guess that doesn’t imply all of them are solutions. I also marked this one as solved with the correct answer.

    @tkrusterholz said in Unit nfs.service not found, nfs-kernel-server is installed:

    Is there a workaround for running in a container or is this not supported?

    I am sure you can make this work but don’t have the details at hand. You can find many posts on Proxmox in the forums. Pay close attention to the versions being discussed because in earlier versions there was a manual fix (something about AppArmor I think) but with the later versions you had to change a specific container setting as far as I remember.


  • Ubuntu 20.04 Proxmox container template
    FOG 1.5.9.114 dev branch
    New install

    You guessed it, Proxmox container. I originally tried to install FOG on baremetal, but I am using the server for more than just FOG and the install script doesn’t like multiple IP addresses on one interface. Running FOG in a container was my solution to that as the container only sees the virtual NIC.

    Is there a workaround for running in a container or is this not supported?

    @tkrusterholz First things first, please let us know the Linux OS and version you run as well as the FOG version you try to install. Exactly as you see it in the linked topic!

    mount: /proc/fs/nfsd: permission denied.

    Seeing this in the output you posted makes me think you might have run the script as normal user or maybe using sudo ... instead of switching to a full root shell.

    Or maybe it’s some kind of wired SELinux or AppArmor issue.

    So you run this on hardware or in some kind of emulated environment like Proxmox containers or Docker?
