NFS Services just stopped working after FC16 yum update

System was running recently yum-updated FC16. NFS/TFTP/FTP/telnet/etc. services were all working fine.

I ran "yum update" this morning and rebooted the system to load the new kernel.

Now nfs services do not work anymore...

I am able to nfs mount a remote system, but trying to nfs mount to localhost, or attempting to mount a local dir from a remote system times out.

As far as I can tell the rpc/nfs services are running.

a systemctl query shows nfs-idmap, nfs-lock, rpcbind.service and rpcbind.socket are all running. anything else missing??

I sure do miss /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs restart ...

must manually run "service nfs-server start".

There is no reference to "nfs-server" in the list of systemctl services, so its hidden, and the dumb thing does not remember its settings after power down.

whoever came up with this hokey replacement hack should be.... well, you know what I mean.

Re: NFS Services just stopped working after FC16 yum update

run (as root)

systemctl enable nfs-server.service
Then it should start on every boot.
