NFS kernel server: "portmapper is not running"

Post by ^rooker »

[PROBLEM]
Installing nfs-kernel-server package on Debian 8 (raspbian).
Checking its status using "service nfs-kernel-server status" returns a message containing the following warning:
nfs-kernel-server[28483]: Not starting: portmapper is not running ... (warning).
[SOLUTION]
Thanks to a Wiki page about Raspberry Pi (on eclipse.org), the following steps solved the problem:

Purge rpcbind and nfs-common:

Code: Select all

$  sudo apt-get purge rpcbind nfs-common
$  sudo apt-get install rpcbind nfs-kernel-server nfs-common
Restart the services:

Code: Select all

$ service rpcbind restart
$ service nfs-kernel-server restart
Yay! :D
