Cannot access NFS share mounted on Linux client

Cannot access NFS share mounted on Linux client

Cannot access NFS share mounted on Linux client

I am trying to mount a Windows Server 2012 NFS shared folder on a RHEL 6.5 client. It looks like I can mount the folder, but I cannot access it. When I try to access the mounted folder I get an “Input/output error”. Any suggestions?

When I run “rpcinfo /p” on the Windows Server I get:
program version protocol port
100000 2 udp 111 portmapper
100000 3 udp 111 portmapper
100000 4 udp 111 portmapper

100024 1 udp 2049 status

From the Linux client:
[root@localhost /]# showmount -e
Export list for
/Linux (everyone)

[root@localhost /]# mount /mnt/Linux
[root@localhost /]# cd /mnt/Linux/
bash: cd: /mnt/Linux/: Input/output error

[root@localhost /]# ll /mnt/
total 40
drwx------ 2 4294967294 4294967294 12288 Aug 23 12:45 Linux

I have also tried using the following to mount the share, and I get the same error.
mount -t nfs -o proto=tcp,port=2049 /mnt/Linux

RE: Cannot access NFS share mounted on Linux client

Is the SMB/Samba server running?

RE: Cannot access NFS share mounted on Linux client

Ah, figured it out. I needed to add the user permissions on the Windows side. Since I want test systems to have access to this folder, I set R/W for the "anonymous loggon" group. Now I can view the directory.
