    NFS mount: Failed to start rpc-statd.service

      Hi

       

      I used this guide to install NFS in Photon ( photon/nfs-utils.md at master · vmware/photon · GitHub ) but when trying to mount an nfs volume I get this error:

      root@photon001 [ /opt/MineCraftData/world ]# mount -t nfs storcent02.vanzanten.local:/Backups /mnt/nfs-storcent02/

      Failed to start rpc-statd.service: Unit rpc-statd.service failed to load: No such file or directory.

      mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.

      mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.

      mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified

       

      I can't find a way to install rpc-statd service.

       

      Any tips?
