nfs backup

  • nope, I'm testing paid version
    I've setup nfs share using this tut
    link text

  • Check dmesg for more info on why the mount failed. Maybe you have a firewall somewhere, anyway, this is not XOA related.

  • no firewall, same switch, same network, what to search for in dmesg?

  • Anything related to why the mount failed. This is really basic stuff. You can use sudo showmount -a <IP ADDRESS OF THE NFS SHARE> in your XOA to see if you can see them.

  • [05:49 11] xoa01:xoa$ showmount -a
    All mount points on
    [05:52 11] xoa01:xoa$

  • Let's try to mount it manually:

    sudo mount -t nfs -o vers=3 /mnt

  • there are some issues within xoa vm or xcp and xoa, I think its related with continous disconnecting me from xoa servers in XOA appliance

    [06:34 11] xoa:xoa$ mount -t nfs -o vers=3 /mnt
    mount.nfs: Connection timed out
    [06:38 11] xoa:xoa$

    .50 - debian with nfs share

  • Check your MTU settings.

  • (debian nfs) -> mtu 1500
    xoa vm -> 1500
    xcp host ->

    [root@XCP01 ~]# ifconfig | grep mtu
    eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
    eth1: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500

  • So the problem is in the network between your XOA and the NFS share. Again, it's not a XOA issue.

    Don't forget to check your switch configuration too 🙂 There is something blocking NFS mount, and as you said, the problem is probably bigger than that!

  • @olivierlambert switch have default vaule (no jumbo frame enabled)

  • @akurzawa said in nfs backup:

    mount.nfs: Connection timed out

    Until you find the reason for that, you'll have problems. Double check your network (physical side, cables etc.), configuration, firewalls, etc. The culprit is somewhere there 🙂

  • I think its XCP host itself - remebmer when I could not get upgrade xoa? the xoa host was not pingable from xoa vm, but from xcp host - no problem
    but I have no knowledge to debug xcp host

  • Oliver - every other network service just works fine - I have only problems with xoa on xcp host....

  • I see. You can try to halt XOA VM, remove the virtual card, recreate it (double check it's on the right pool network), boot again and check. If you continue to have issues, feel free to open a post on XCP-ng forum describing your network issues on this VM again a NFS server (it's a good start).

  • Did issue get resolved. I have the same problem. Thanks

  • @marcusrushy please open a support ticket, we can access your XOA and push a workaround on your current install, until a next release 🙂

  • I have install from source is that a problem

  • You aren't in the right category then 😉 (this is the category for XOA, our virtual appliance). Please open a new post there describing exactly your issue, community will help when possible
