Problem to mount NFS

0 votes

I have a problem with my Digi ConnectCore 9p 9215. When I type "dboot linux tftp" the Kernel was download by TFTP and when it mount the rootfs, it search a NFS directory. Or, it can't mount the NFS directory.

My server is up, NFS also, i had trying with others directory in /etc/exports..

Error message is : "Kernel panic, cannot find init on bootargs [...]" and, above it's written "Cannot mount NFS [...]

Best regards.

on the host side do you use Vitual Machine or physical Linux box? For Linux do you use Kubuntu installed from Digi Embedded Linux Live DVD or some other distribution?

The error means that either your Linux host has no NFS server configured and running or you do not have a rootfs extracted and copied in to /exports/nfsroot-cc9p9215 folder on your host machine when you did “install project”
If you have installed NFS server, please make sure it is configured properly:
Your /etc/exports should look like this:
/exports *(rw,all_squash,anonuid=1000,anongid=1000,async,no_subtree_check)

also if you are running VM make sure the firewall/antivirus are disabled on the host OS and there is no firewall on Linux host.
