I have set up shares on an NFS server. I can mount the shares with no error. The share sizes reported by "df" are much smaller than the share size on the server eg. server reports 1 TB but the share looks like 3.8 G from the clients. I can create a test file on the nfs share from a client, and this test file is visible from all clients, but when I go to the shared directory on the server, the file is not there. Similarly, files that pre-exist on the server, are not visible to any clients. On the server, I ran the command "updatedb" and searched for the newly created test file; however, it is not found anywhere on the server. So, I am accessing some share, and I can create files on the share from the client, but can't see these files anywhere on the server. I see no significant nfs related errors in /var/log/messages. The server is CentOS 5.8. The clients are CentOS 6.4. Iptables is turned off on both server and clients for testing.
I don't see any issues with name resolution or DNS.
[root@vmappp04 /]# cat /etc/exports /data 192.168.1.0/24(fsid=0,rw,sync,no_root_squash) [root@vmappp04 /]# rpm -qa |grep nfs-utils nfs-utils-1.0.9-66.el5 nfs-utils-lib-1.0.8-7.9.el5 nfs-utils-lib-1.0.8-7.9.el5 [root@vmappp04 /]# rpm -qa |grep nfs4-acl-tools nfs4-acl-tools-0.3.3-3.el5 [root@vmappp04 /]# rpm -qa |grep portmap portmap-4.0-126.96.36.199
There is no hosts.allow or hosts.deny file existing on the server.
cat /etc/fstab vmappp04:/ /data/filer_01 nfs4 noauto,defaults 0 0 [root@vmappp11 ~]# rpm -qa |grep nfs-utils nfs-utils-lib-1.1.5-6.el6.x86_64 nfs-utils-1.2.3-36.el6.x86_64 [root@vmappp11 ~]# rpm -qa |grep nfs4-acl-tools nfs4-acl-tools-0.3.3-6.el6.x86_64
portmap is not installed on clients
output from mount command on client appears correct:
[root@vmappp11 ~]# showmount -e vmappp04 vmappp04:/ on /data/filer_01 type nfs4 (rw,addr=192.168.1.16,clientaddr=192.168.1.84)

I've tried all kinds of permutations on the server and client side. Unsure how to proceed, please advise; much obliged for any assistance.
