This message indicates that the NFS client software is not installed.


Depending on your flavor of Linux, check to see that the appropriate NFS client software is installed. Run the following command to see if the NFS client utilities are installed (Redhat):

rpm -q nfs-utils


Install the NFS client utilities using the appropriate commands or utilities. For example (Redhat):

sudo yum install nfs-utils
