Why does changing timeo attribute on NFS mount fails ?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Not able to change the timeo attribute on NFS mounts. For some reason the value is not taken:

    [root@node1 /]# mount -o tcp,soft,timeo=10 /mnt
    [root@node1 /]# grep test /proc/mounts /mnt nfs rw,vers=3,rsize=65536,wsize=65536,soft,proto=tcp,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sys,addr= 0 0


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
  • Multiple NFS-exports mounted with different time/bg/proto options
