SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for nfs-utils
Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2017:1120-1
Rating: low
References: #1005609 #1019211 #1028376
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12-SP1
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 12-SP1

  • An update that has three recommended fixes can now be installed.


    This update for nfs-utils fixes the following issues:

    - When updating from SLES 12 to 12-SP1, enable nfsserver.service if the
    old SysV service "nfsserver" was enabled. Ditto for nfs.service and
    "nfs". (bsc#1028376)
    - Only require a filesystem to be mounted if it isn't marked 'noauto' in
    /etc/fstab. (bsc#1019211)
    - Move rpc.svcgssd and corresponding man page from nfs-client package to
    nfs-kernel-server. For NFSv4.0 this is needed on client as well as the
    server to support the back-channel. (bsc#1005609)
