How to mount an NFS share for backups storage in KATA 5.x [KATA/KEDRE]

Recommended Posts

Advice and Solutions (Forum Knowledgebase) Disclaimer. Read before using materials.


In previous versions of KATA it was possible to mount an NFS share to copy backups to. In KATA 5.x only CIFS share mounts are available out-of the box.

root@1.srv.node1.node.dyn.kata:/home/admin# mount -t nfs /mnt/nfs
mount: /mnt/nfs: bad option; for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program.


Install packages manually via dpkg in the following order to add NFS support:

dpkg -i /home/admin/libtirpc-common_1.2.5-1_all.deb
dpkg -i /home/admin/libtirpc3_1.2.5-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i /home/admin/keyutils_1.6-6ubuntu1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i /home/admin/libnfsidmap2_0.25-5.1ubuntu1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i /home/admin/rpcbind_1.2.5-8_amd64.deb
dpkg -i /home/admin/nfs-common_1.3.4-2.5ubuntu3.5_amd64.deb
