rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking. Centos 6

Posted 09 August, 2018

Got this error :

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.
mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified

You forgot the rpcbind service !

yum install rpcbind
service rpcbind start
chkconfig rpcbind on

Glad to help 😉
