I am trying to use a NFS share as a Datasource but I cannot seem to get it to work.
I already have multiple Watchlists reading from my NFS share so I know everything is configure correctly and can talk.
However, when I go to test connection to the NFS share from the "Add Data Source" menu I get this error:
"NotOk mount.nfs: No such process"
Does NFS work differently from the datasource menu for some reason? Why would this work perfectly from a watchlist but fail here?
I have checked my FW logs and I am not any NFS traffic. I almost wonder if there the NFS service needs to be started on the Receiver.
Wonder if this is something I can configure/check from the UI?
I'd suggest not having the receiver connect to NFS to retrieve data. From a security perspective you are basically creating more systems that have access to other systems, in general this should be avoided if at all possible.
I'm assuming your logs are on some sort of linux system because you are speaking of NFS. Look at the rsyslog package, included in (almost?) all of the major *nix distributions. It provides excellent methods for sending data via syslog over udp or tcp, and reading from files, managing all of the bookmarking internally and transparently.
