Unable to provision trident in Rancher OS based k8s cluster

Hi!

I'm trying to install trident on a Rancher provided k8s cluster but fails with the following error:

/opt/rke/var/lib/kubelet/pods/057a897a-9d89-11e9-9490-005056bf9b18/volumes/kubernetes.io~nfs/trident
Output: mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.

Rancher OS running on the worker nodes is v1.5.1 and the

volume-nfs

has been enabled on the worker nodes, albeit with no success - the tridentctl install command fails with the above error.

What do I need to do on the worker nodes in order to have this working.

Cheers

Looks like rpcbind might not be running or isn't installed -  can you share the output of the "chkconfig --list rpcbind" and "service rpcbind status" commands?

When you said you enabled volumes-nfs on the worker nodes, what did you mean? I'm having a whale of a time getting any NFS or Trident shares to work as a storage class with a Rancher OS based k8s cluster. I was able to install trident without that error on my cluster, I just can't provision storage.
