I'm running a few Amazon EC2 instances. One of them is a NFS server with the following exports:
/home/user/comm 10.0.0.0/255.0.0.0(ro) 126.96.36.199/255.0.0.0(ro)
And in the client side:
xxx.compute-1.amazonaws.com:/home/user/comm /home/user/user_comm nfs noauto,soft,intr 0 0
I've tried to:
- change soft to hard
- disable the noauto
- use the elastic ip address instead of the public dns
The issue I'm having is whenever the server reboots, the client isn't able to see it anymore. The server gets assigned the same elastic ip address though. In order for the client to be able to connect to the server again, I've to change the fstab to point to whatever resolution I wasn't using before. So, if I was using the IP address, I have to use the hostname this name, and vice-versa.
I'm new with the whole NFS client<>server on EC2, so if anyone can enlighten me with suggestions, I would really appreciate.
