Auto mounting the nfs file systems.

Dear HPUX lovers,

 

I have Zero knowledge in nfs.

 

After rebooting a NFS server I have to  execute the command

# exportfs -i /<fs1>

# exportfs -i /<fs2>

...so on

 to make the fs available to nfs client.

 

I want that after rebooting this should be done automatically.

 

Pls suggest how to do this?

 

I can't test it right away.

 

The suggestions will be kept until next opertunity comes.

 

Regards...

 

Kuntal

Re: Auto mounting the nfs file systems.

/etc/exports file should be processed at boot time automatically. If the exported filesystems are mounted some time later, then some kind of script/automation might be required to exportfs them after they are mounted. And exportfs -a exports all filesystems in /etc/exports, so you don't have to exporfs them one by one.
