cannot nfs mount with exec
Posted on 2008-10-31
I mount a remote directory via NFS through a home network (both the server and client are Fedora Linux 6), and have now realised I cannot run scripts on the mount. This seems to be due to the fact that it is mounted with the `noexec' option (the 'mount' command says so), though I didn't mean this to happen.
I put 'exec' option explicitly in the fstab file and re-mounted the directory, but it still remains non-executable. Would anybody advise what is preventing the executable mount???
Incidentally I put -rw option in the /etc/exports file on the NFS host.
