Re: exportfs

By default, filesystems are exported read-write. You first edit the file /etc/exports and add your filesystems

/u01

Save the file and then exportfs -a which will exported any unexported filesystems list in /etc/exports. If you want to change the attributes of an already exported filesystem, you need to unexport it
exportfs -u /u01, make your changes to /etc/exports, and then exportfs -a.

Man exports and exportfs for details.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: exportfs

you can write on an exported directory, to me it means you are on the nfs server. to write on a nfs mounted directory , you will need to export it without -o ro option. which is default.. If this is temporary , i do it as follows,


exportfs -i /kapil/soft -o root=server1,access=server1. Please note that if you do not give root=server1 , The root user of server1 will not have any permission on this mounted directory.
