nfs problems.

usually when i use NFS service. i configure the '/etc/exports' file, and run 'exportfs -av' to share NFS file system to clients.

but now,i need to run 'share' command to share NFS file system to clients.

it seems no use of running command 'exportfs -av' even i have configured the '/etc/exports' file

can anyone explain this?

appreciative!

Hi,

If you are using 11.31 the version of NFS is changed to NFS4.

In this version configuration files/commands are a little different.

like /etc/dfs/dfstab = exports

you have commands shareall,unshare,share which replaces exportfs -a, exportfs -u, exportfs.

you have new permission option also.
There is a difference in port/deamon communication also.

Re: nfs problems.

As was noted, 11.31 has replaced NFS with the new version. /etc/exports is no longer used in this version.

See man share
