Network and Storage Protocols
I'm trying to figure out why my filer do not allow me to mount volume for my netgroups that are stored in LDAP.
Client is opensuse 12.1
ldap2:~ # uname -r
NFS4 support is disabled:
ldap2:~ # grep NFS4_SUPPORT /etc/sysconfig/nfs
NFS client services are running:
ldap2:~ # systemctl status nfs.service
nfs.service - LSB: NFS client services
Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/nfs)
Active: active (exited) since Wed, 12 Sep 2012 10:24:12 +0400; 51min ago
Process: 16025 ExecStop=/etc/init.d/nfs stop (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
Process: 16047 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/nfs start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
Firewall is turned off. There is no NAT gateway between client and netapp filer.
I store my netgroups in LDAP:
On filer side:
fas2> vol create test sataaggr 1g
fas2> exportfs -io rw=@home-hosts,anon=0 /vol/test
fas2> qtree status test
Volume Tree Style Oplocks Status
-------- -------- ----- -------- ---------
test unix enabled normal
fas2> ping ldap2.local.prv
ldap2.local.prv is alive
fas2> rdfile /etc/nsswitch.conf
hosts: files nis dns
passwd: files nis ldap
netgroup: files nis ldap
group: files nis ldap
shadow: files nis
Filer can successfully find host in netgroups that are stored in LDAP catalog:
fas2> options ldap.base.netgroup ldap.base.netgroup
fas2> priv set advanced
fas2*> getXXbyYY netgrp home-hosts ldap2.local.prv
client ldap2.local.prv is in netgroup home-hosts
With all this client still cannot mount volume.
ldap2:~ # mount.nfs -o rw,tcp,hard,timeo=600,nfsvers=3 fas2:/vol/test /mnt
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting fas2:/vol/test
ldap2:~ # showmount -e fas2
Export list for fas2:
I enabled nfs.mountd.trace option, but i do not see any messages regarding denied access in /etc/messages on filer.
If i change access to volume
fas2> exportfs -io rw=ldap2.local.prv /vol/test
client is able to mount volume.
I tried to `exportfs -f`, but it does not help. I'm just wondering why when i try to check host membership in netgroup
with getXXbyYY on filer i see queries on LDAP server, but i do not see queries when I'm trying to mount volume from client.

My problem was that names that i specified in netgroup OU lacked PTR records in DNS.
On connection filer has only IP address that it need to map back to DNS name.
When i fixed reverse lookup everything start working fine.
