Hi All, just a quick update today.
I was trying to get NFS working today but kept running into errors.
Whenever I tried to start imapd, I would keep getting this error –
rpc.idmapd: main: fcntl(/var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs/nfs): Invalid argument
Turns out, I didn’t have dnotify support enabled in the kernel.
Enabling this now, and will be testing very soon.
Just a quick tip for anyone coming across this issue !
sweet, I was about to give up after hitting that!
Thanks! If I had used strace, I would’ve seen this myself, but your post was spot on!
$ strace -f rpc.idmapd -f 2>&1 | grep INVAL
fcntl(8, F_NOTIFY, DN_MODIFY|DN_CREATE|DN_DELETE|DN_MULTISHOT) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)
