Confused about exporting NFS

Hi,

I'm a little confused about exporting a new NFS mount on tru64.

From what I found on the web i have to edit /etc/exports and then I have to restart nfs services via /sbin/init.d/nfs start and /sbin/init.d/nfsmount start

My only problem is this is a prod box with other nfs mounts. I'm guessing this will cause the other mounts to momentarily dissapear or reset? I would prefer a way to add the nfs mount "on the fly"

Hi Richard,

You shouldn't need to restart NFS from what I recall.

If you add the new mount to /etc/exports it should be visible straight away on your NFS clients.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

or
"man exports":

[...]
To make a change to the exports file and have
it take effect immediately, send the mountd
process a HUP signal. Otherwise, the mountd
process will reread the exports file the next
time it receives a mount request from an NFS
client or a showmount -e request.

I don't know what/where you "found on the
web", but when in doubt, I start at:
