Linux: NFS4 mount Error reason given by server: No such file or directory

I recently installed NFS server v4 on my HP Linux server. However, I’m not able to mount it from Linux nfs4 client using the following command:

mount.nfs4 server2:/data /data

I’m getting the following error:

mount.nfs4: mounting server2:/data failed, reason given by server:
No such file or directory

How do I fix this problem?

First, make sure fsid is set to 0 on server2 using /etc/exports file:

/data	192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(rw,no_root_squash,subtree_check,fsid=0)

Make sure you reload the NFSv4 server after making changes to the /etc/exports file.

NFSv4 Client Mount

The command syntax is as follows:

mount.nfs4 server2:/ /data

OR

mount -t nfs4 server2:/ /data

Please do not specify the server path /data for NFSv4. You need to specify only / as fsid is set to 0.

    mount.nfs4 192.168.8.10:/ /mnt/lhome
    mount.nfs4: access denied by server while mounting 192.168.8.10:/
    Same error without fsid=0
    mount -t nfs -o proto=tcp,port=2049 192.168.8.10:/export/lhome /mnt/lhome/
    mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 192.168.8.10:/export/lhome
