    Fedora Core 2 Test 3 - NFS server: server is down

    I installed FC2T3 on one of my machines and could not mount any NFS-Dir from my Server (SuSE 8.2). With FC1 on my other machines I have no problem at all mounting any NFS-Dirs from the server.

    Code:
    [root@flaneur root]# mount 192.168.1.2:/home
    mount to NFS server '192.168.1.2' failed: server is down.

    [root@flaneur root]#
    SELinux and the firewall are already disabled...

    Has anyone any suggestions?

    I got a solution for this problem - thanks to Ron McKown and the fedora-test-list:

    You should mount your nfs-dir with the "nfsvers"-option like this:

    Code:
    mount -o nfsvers=2 192.168.1.2:/home
