RPC : service not registered
Posted on 2001-08-24
I just setup a Sun250E on our network and was trying to verify some of my nfs mounts. When I type showmount I receive hostname: RPC: service not registered. What exactly does this mean and how do I correct the problem, this is my first sun box to setup, normally I am on IRIX, so be specific on what areas I need to take a look at to correct. The software is loaded and under the /etc/rc3.d SUNWpcnfs is present. WHen I do a ps -ef | grep for nfs or pcnfs everything looks good. I have the statd and lockd file, however no mountd. The server is setup for dns and I have looked at those associated files, hence the question to the experts.
