First we need to tell NFS to use statd, to do this
sudo /etc/init.d/rpcbind start sudo vi /etc/default/nfs-common add the line "NEED_STATD=yes" reboot PI or /etc/init.d/nfs-common restart
Next we need to create a local folder that will be the mount point of the remount NFS folder. In this instance I have a folder called ‘raspberry’ on my Netgear RasdyNAS NV+ device
sudo mkdir -p /nas/raspberry sudo chmod 777 /nas/raspberry
Now we can mount the remote folder to local folder
sudo mount 192.168.1.199:/raspberry /nas/raspberry
Change the IP address 192.168.1.199 to whatever you NFS server has.
If you subsequently want to remove the remote folder, or unmount it, then using the following command
sudo umount /nas/raspberry
If you want the mount to be available everytime you boot the pi, then you need an entry in /etc/fstab
sudo vi /etc/fstab
And add the following entry at the end of the file:
192.168.1.199:/raspberry /nas/raspberry nfs defaults 0 0
Thats it. The next time you reboot the pi it will automatically mount that drive.
