ERROR: mount: unknown filesystem type 'nfs'
Release: Component: IDSVA
Mount the filesystem using the vers=3and nolockoptions.
The following information is available from any linux man page for nfs.
The NFS protocol version number used to contact the server's NFS service. If the server does not support the requested version, the mount request fails. If this option is not specified, the client negotiates a suitable version with the server, trying version 4 first, version 3 second, and version 2 last.
This option is an alternative to thenfsversoption. It is included for compatibility with other operating systems
Selects whether to use the NLM sideband protocol to lock files on the server. If neither option is specified (or iflockis specified), NLM locking is used for this mount point. When using thenolockoption, applications can lock files, but such locks provide exclusion only against other applications running on the same client. Remote applications are not affected by these locks.
NLM locking must be disabled with thenolockoption when using NFS to mount/varbecause/varcontains files used by the NLM implementation on Linux. Using thenolockoption is also required when mounting exports on NFS servers that do not support the NLM protocol.
