Suse11 cannot mount NFS share Linux

Posted by Admin • Wednesday, December 9. 2015 • Category: DevOps, Linux

This is a recent issue on Suse 11.3. I have hundreds of machines mounting the same share fine - Centos, RedHat, even AIX.
mount -v /mountpoint

Suprisingly, the problem is exactly what it says it is. Adding ",vers=4" to the options takes care of the problem. Hope this saves you time.
