mount.nfs: No such device

mount.nfs: No such device


I was trying to rebuild the kernel using the tips found in google and screwed my RHEL 5.1 box NFS modules.

This is what I get when I try to mount:

#mount server1:/vol/copy /mnt
mount.nfs: No such device

lsmod shows nothing related to nfs.

# lsmod |grep nfs
# /etc/init.d/nfs start
Starting NFS services:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting NFS quotas:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS daemon:                                       [FAILED]
# rpcinfo -p localhost
   program vers proto   port
    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper
    100024    1   udp    970  status
    100024    1   tcp    973  status
    100011    1   udp    704  rquotad
    100011    2   udp    704  rquotad
    100011    1   tcp    707  rquotad
    100011    2   tcp    707  rquotad

Now it is obvious that I need to reload the nfs/nfsd modules but don't know how to do it as this is the first time am playing around with modules in Linux.

Any pointers or suggestions please?
