Lab 5.2 Step 13 - FailedMount

I am trying to deploy deployment try1. Pod are coming up but both of the volumeMounts in simpleapp containers are failing. The configmap volume car-vol is failing to mount with 'failed to sync configmap cache' error and the nfs volume pvvol-1 mounting is failing with 'exit status 32'. Anyone experienced these errors?

    I did some research in the internet. I noticed several duplicate entries in /etc/exports file. They are probably the result of running CreateNFS.sh script multiple times. I cleaned them up. And exported the file using sudo exportfs -a. Finally, restarted the nfs server using 'sudo systemctl restart nfs-kernel-server'. when I recreated the deployment, both the volumeMounts worked fine. I don't know what exactly caused the original error. Thus my issue is resolved.

    Sounds like your error was caused by running the setup script several times. There are many things in Linux which would break if you run a setup script over and over, with out cleanup in-between each iteration.
