    [B]It looks like fog not recognizing NFS server.[/B]
    [B]I have checked that the NFS server is running and I have:[/B]

    [user@local bin]# [B]systemctl status nfs-server.service[/B]

    Somebody knows how to solve this issue ?

  • im running FEdora 17 btw

  • Hi Alin,

    I have the same problem but im new to linux and unsure of the specifiks of your solution.

    I have tried to change my file but i belive this is what was written originally:

    chkconfig nfs on;
    service nfs restart >/dev/null 2>&1;
    service nfs status >/dev/null 2>&1;

    based on what you wrote I have written the following:

    chkconfig nfs-server on;
    systemctl restart nfs-server.service
    systemctl status nfs-server.service
    service nfs restart >/dev/null 2>&1;
    service nfs status >/dev/null 2>&1;

    Have i done it wrong?

    I get this error (remember im totally new to linux) when the above has been changed

    CGroup: name=systemd: /system/nfs-server.service

  • I found the answer.
    You must modify Fog installation kit by modifying in file from /lib/redhat on line 108,109 and 110. Change with:
    chkconfig nfs-server.service on
    systemctl restart nfs-server.service
    systemctl status nfs-server.service
