Earlier today I was troubleshooting NFS or Network File System issues on a Ubuntu Linux server and ran into some specific errors. Luckily the errors were easily resolved by restarting portmap on the server. Below I show the error output on the server end in more detail, how to resolve the issue, and testing the Network File System mount from OSX.
Earlier this morning I needed to run some tests against a NFS server running on BackTrack Linux version 5 release 3 and ran into some issues installing the nfs-kernel-server. It appeared as if things started to install properly but then the nfs-kernel-server did not start properly and ended up displaying a couple errors. Below I describe the error in more detail followed by the process I used to get the nfs-kernel-server installed properly on BT5.
