View Full Version : NFS client support on SLES 11 SP4 AMI

07-Dec-2016, 06:26
I deployed a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP4 (PV, 64-bit, SSD-Backed) AMI provided by AWS / SUSE. I chose the free t1.micro instance to play around with. I have to use SLES 11 SP4.

I am trying to mount our Elastic File System via NFS and mount just hangs:

mount -t nfs4 -o rsize=1048576,wsize=1048576,hard,timeo=600,retrans =2 us-west-2b.fs-3716d39j.efs.us-west-2.amazonaws.com:/ efs

This https://docs.aws.amazon.com/efs/latest/ug/mounting-fs.html#mounting-fs-nfs-info link says that NFS v4.0 is supported:

Amazon EFS supports the Network File System version 4.1 (NFSv4.1) and NFSv4.0 protocols when mounting your file systems on Amazon EC2 instances.

In my own office, I can successfully mount NFS v4.0 shares from my SLES 11 SP4 server. Is this a security issue that I am blind to?

I quickly solved this issue by changing the security group of my instance to match the security group of my file system.
