How to Troubleshoot Issues With the NFS Service on the Server

The following procedure describes the logical sequence that you can follow to verify whether the NFS service is running on the server.

  1. Check whether the server can reach the clients.
    # ping client
  2. If the client is not reachable, check that the local naming service is running.
  3. If the naming service is running, check the networking software configuration on the server, for example, the /etc/netmasks file and the properties that are set for the svc:/system/name-service/switch SMF service.
  4. Check whether the rpcbind daemon is running.
    # rpcinfo -u localhost rpcbind
  5. Check whether the nfsd daemon is running.
    # rpcinfo -u localhost nfs
    # ps -ef | grep mountd
