I just wanted to get nfs up and running on my Raspberry Jessie and got the uggly error message. Root cause is the nfs-server starts before rpcbind. If you restart the nfs-server after boot it will work. But will not work again after reboot. Following page describes how to get this fixed.


 You have to create two additional files for systemd:

1) /etc/systemd/system/

Description=NFS Common daemons

ExecStart=/etc/init.d/nfs-common start
ExecStop=/etc/init.d/nfs-common stop

2) /etc/systemd/system/

Description=RPC bind portmap service
ExecStart=/sbin/rpcbind -f -w

Now execute following commands:

systemctl enable nfs-common

systemctl enable rpcbind

and reboot. Enjoy :-)
