Shalom,

Lets say the filesystem is mounted as /myfs

vi /etc/exports
/myfs


save it

exportfs -av

Its exported.

You can throw options on it to make it more secure if you wish.

Re: export a a vxfs file system

It is not necessary to change the fstype from vxfs to nfs.

just place it in /etc/exports and export the filesystem using exporfs /eg.
vi /etc/exports
/tmp -rw=
wq!

exportfs /tmp

from the client host
create dir such as
#mkdir export
#mount :/tmp /export

finally add this entry in the /etc/fstab
