I'm trying to install Red Hat 6.2 on 19 PCs using
NFS. The NFS server is running from a SuSE 6.4 box,
exporting /cdrom, and I have verified that this
is mountable from an existing Linux box.
However, when I go to run the installation,
I run into problems: I fill in the details of
the NFS server, and the Red Hat directory (/cdrom)
and after a while I get the response
"I could not mount that directory from the server
mount: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Timed out"
I also tried to install via FTP, just in case it
was a NFS problem. I entered ftp.esat.net as the
ftp site, and the response is
"ftp.esat.net is not a valid hostname"
despite the fact that I can ftp to this from a
neighbouring Linux box.
Any suggestions as to what's going wrong?
Is this a RH6.2 problem, or a local network/nameserver
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
