I have a SLES12 SP5 as client and I try to mount a NFS storage.
When I try : mount -t nfs -o rw nfsserverIP:/nfsDirectory /nfsPoint, I have the error: “mount.nfs: Protocol family not supported”
Server supports version 3 :
rpcinfo -p nfsserverIP | grep nfs
100003 3 tcp 2049 nfs
If I use the option vers=3 in the mount command, it works.
The nfs configuration on client is the default one, if I refer to the SLES 12 SP5 doc(Sharing File Systems with NFS | Administration Guide | SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP5), the “nfs” means the version 3, when nfs4 is used for NFSv4.
So, why am I forced to used the “vers=3” option ?
