I'm trying to mount an NFS 4 share described in fstab as:
Code:
drozd.aster:/        /mnt/remote-drozd   nfs4       noauto,user                    0 0


Mount command:
Code:
# mount /mnt/remote-drozd
Job for rpc-statd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status rpc-statd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
mount.nfs4: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs4: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
mount.nfs4: an incorrect mount option was specified


rpc-statd status:
Code:
# systemctl status -l rpc-statd.service
● rpc-statd.service - NFS status monitor for NFSv2/3 locking.
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib64/systemd/system/rpc-statd.service; static; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since 水 2015-09-02 10:34:23 MSK; 26s ago

 9月 02 10:34:23 melforce systemd[1]: rpc-statd.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.


Please tell me what's wrong.
I noticed rpc-statd is for NFS 2 and 3, not for NFS 4.

I can't really tell what is wrong from your post, but to maybe point you in the direction of the problem; you need the following running on the client:
Code:
systemctl status rpcbind.service
Code:
systemctl status remote-fs.target
so you could try enabling and starting either and/or both of those if they are not running.

Assuming that gets you mounted: In your fstab line, you probably want to add rw to your options
Quote:
drozd.aster:/ /mnt/remote-drozd nfs4 rw,noauto,user 0 0
or you won't have any useful permissions on the user mount.

Thanks, I could mount it after starting rpcbind.service (why is it not started as a dependency?).
It wasn't necessary to add "rw", it's the default.

Glad you got it running. Quite right about the default rw setting too, brain-fade there on my part. I fast-checked fstab on one of the machines here I set up to connect to a few different exports and I'd specified rw, ro on each individual mount; guess I did that to remind me how they're exported, I can't really remember now.

I do recall moving to systemd caused me massive ass-pain when migrating my nfs setup - and really poorly documented. Anyway, mark this one [solved] if you're good, might help someone else with the same issue. I won't bother to edit my original reply, leaving rw in the options won't hurt, even if it is redundant. :oops:
