I am wondering what services are needed for client mounting NFS.
According to wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Nfs#Client it should be rpc-mountd:
# systemctl start rpc-mountd
Do I really need it?
From manual rpc-mountd:
The rpc.mountd daemon implements the server side of the NFS MOUNT pro‐
tocol, an NFS side protocol used by NFS version 2 [RFC1094] and NFS
version 3 [RFC1813].
Each file system in the export table has an access control list.
rpc.mountd uses these access control lists to determine whether an NFS
client is permitted to access a given file system.
rpc-mountd also starts NFS server. I think it is not necessary for client too?

Not necessary on the client.
