Awww cute little proxmox container doesn’t know nfs. (CentOS release 6.7 (Final))
[[email protected] /]# mount -o ro -t nfs server:/data /media/ mount: unknown filesystem type 'nfs'
Well its new its young, lets give it some experience with nfs :
yum install nfs-utils
So are we ready yet ?
[[email protected]/]# mount -o ro -t nfs server:/data /media/ mount.nfs: No such device
Wut ? Ah, since this is not “our” kernel, we can’t access the kernel modules and load the nfs module : –no reason to panic–
[[email protected]/]# modprobe nfs Fatal: module nfs not found
This is done using :
vzctl set OPEN_VZ_ID --feature nfs:on --save
note : The openVZ manual suggests to add nfsd as a feature, I’m not sure why, since “d” mostly is used to indicate its a deamon; perhaps its a typo, or on other systems its like that, but I did not found that to be working;
note 2 : if you don’t like the command, just add it directly to the config file, for my proxmox installation that is in
/etc/pve/openvz/xxx.conf add :
after this, you need to restart the container
vzctl restart OPEN_VZ_ID after that you can enter again and mounting the nfs share should work.
mount -o ro -t nfs server:/data media/
