This article is only intended for users attempting to mount NFS shares using macOS.
If you are using ShareBrowser to mount NFS shares, please refer to this article.
When using the ShareBrowser client software to mount NFS shares, the "locallocks" option is automatically included in the mount command. This option is not included with a regular Finder mount operation.
If you're not using ShareBrowser to mount NFS shares, we recommend including this parameter at the time the volume is mounted.
Command line mounting can be used to accomplish this. A mount point needs to have already been created.
mkdir /Volumes/NFSVolumeName; mount -t nfs -o locallocks 192.168.1.25:/evo/NFSVolumeName /Volumes/NFSVolumeName
If the "locallocks" option cannot be used for any reason, the system administrator should check that:
- The local DNS server correctly resolves hostname to IP address and vice versa
- EVO uses this DNS server
- The network firewall and router do not block packets from/to the lockd service
