Raspberry Pi Asked on January 6, 2022
I am trying to set up my pi3 running raspbian as an NFS server. I’ve followed these instructions: http://www.htpcguides.com/configure-nfs-server-and-nfs-client-raspberry-pi/
In /etc/exports I have the line:
/mnt/Shared 192.168.1.0/24 *(rw,sync)
Which I hope means that the folder at /mnt/Shared (which is a directory on an external hard drive) is available for reading and writing by all machines using a local IP address. Then I do exportfs:
$ sudo exportfs /mnt/Shared 192.168.1.0/24 /mnt/Shared <world>
Then, on my laptop, which is running Ubuntu, I follow the client side instructions from the same site, but the mount command fails after a long wait:
$ sudo mount 192.168.1.105:/mnt/Shared /mnt/nfs mount.nfs: Connection timed out
If I try that verbose it looks like this:
sudo mount -v 192.168.1.105:/mnt/Shared /mnt/nfs/ mount.nfs: timeout set for Sat Feb 18 21:52:14 2017 mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4,addr=192.168.1.105,clientaddr=192.168.1.109' mount.nfs: mount(2): Connection refused mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4,addr=192.168.1.105,clientaddr=192.168.1.109' mount.nfs: mount(2): Connection refused ... <repeated several times> ... mount.nfs: Connection timed out
Has anyone any ideas of how to make it work? I don’t think the problem is with the external hard drive, it appears to be mounted correctly, and I had the same issues trying to share a local directory.
Tell reboot to wait for the network to be available. It’s on raspi-config in the advanced section iirc

On the RPi NFS Server (The Media Server)
sudo /etc/init.d/rpcbind restart sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart
On the RPi NFS Client (My Plex Server)
sudo mount 192.168.1.105:/mnt/Shared /mnt/nfs
This worked for me.
And I had to mount my drives including the uid/gid in
/etc/fstap because in my case
chown does not work when the drive is mounted by root.
Maybe someone can give me a tip for that.

First I would make the following bash script and call it delay:
#!/bin/bash # $1：delay time(s) # $2：command # example: # delay 10 "conky -d" sleep $1 exec $2
Then I would make it executable
chmod a+x delay
You could put the command from your comments:
delay 60 "sudo systemctl restart nfs-kernel-server"
at the end of the rc.local file
in /etc/init.d/ to have it run 60 seconds after every time the Pi boots up
