Ive moved from Ubuntu to ElementaryOS and the only drawback I've had is with my NFS shares. I usually setup my NFS shares via FSTAB however I receive an error after trying to open the share. However in Ubuntu I dont get this error and my shares work perfectly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

NFS Error

Here is my FSTAB also


  • interesting ... after the error ... are any of the NFS mounts there? ... ie show output of df -h after the attempted mount ... also a thought ... you might want to put "noauto" on the NFS mounts and manually mount them with a script ... bash script would not be difficult to write ... my thought on this it could be a timing issue on when thw NFS mount is being attempted Jan 25 '20 at 22:27

Try adding user to the fstab nfs mount options. For example: /home/rob/Darth/Applications nfs user,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr
