NFS

Hi,

I need to share by NFS a directory of a host in another one. If it possible or only is allowed to share a filesystem?

In node1(server) I put directory in /etc/exports

How can i mount it en node2(client)?
What others files must modify?


Sorry about my English..

Thanks.-

Re: NFS

directory is also part of the filesystem...right?!

Yes, you can share sub-directory of a file system as well. Just the update to exports file should do. Check out the manpage of "exports" for various available options.

node1:/directory /directory nfs rw,bg,hard,intr 0 0

(in node2 client)
mount node1:/directory /directory nfs rw,bg,hard,intr 0 0

How can i do?

Thanks.-

Re: NFS

sorry

I want to say:

mount -t nfs node1:/dir /dir
I have following error:


Can't access node1:/dir: Permission denied

Re: NFS

Check the permissions on /dir directory on the server. It should have atleast read/execute access for all.

Re: NFS

From the client run:

showmount -e node1

Verify that the directory that you want to mount is listed.

You can also post the results of rpcinfo -p node1
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?

Re: NFS

Hi,

node1:

/dir1 permission 777

node2:

#showmount -e node1

/dir1 access:node2

node2://> # mount -t nfs node1:/dir1 /dir1

Can't access node1:/dir1: Permission denied



I continue with the problem :-(

Re: NFS

I think that the exports file entry on the server is wrong.

It should look like:
/directory -access=node2

Then, on the client node2 do,
# mount node1:/directory /directory

This should work.
