Re: How to install NFS server?

Server Side:
make sure you run NFS services.

vi /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf
NFS_CORE=1

NFS_SERVER=1
PCNFS_SERVER=1
START_NFSLOGD=1
START_MOUNTD=1

- then start the services

/sbin/init.d/nfs.core start
/sbin/init.d/nfs.server start
/sbin/init.d/nfs.client start

1- cd /etc/dfs
2- vi dfstab
# share [-F fstype] [ -o options] [-d ""] [resource]
# .e.g,
# share -F nfs -o rw=engineering -d "home dirs" /share

Where: engineering is the client hostname
and /share is the shared directory

3- shareall

--------------------------------
client side:

mount -F nfs SERVER_NAME:/share /MOUNT_POINT

Re: How to install NFS server?

Hi,

Adding to kemo, on the NFS client side, the NFS_CLIENT control variable should be put as one to enable client functionality and the server as well as client functionality are enabled by default on 11.31, just checking the control variables is important. Commands for the NFS subsystem are different on 11.23 because it uses the exportfs command and a lot of things also depend on if you are using NFS v1, v2, v3 or v4.

Re: How to install NFS server?

Hi,

The command exportfs was used for exporting a filesystem in v2 and now the command share is being used. NFS v3 works on TCP and also has the concept of AUTOFS. NFSv4 has robust authentication mechanisms such as kerberos and levels of it as well as supporting of ACLs and as NFS versions have progressed, performance has increased.
