Quick and dirty configuration of NFS

NFS Consists of the following:

/etc/exports –> /etc/exports contains all the NFS shares

/usr/sbin/exportfs -r
#exportfs -r is used to synchronize nfsd in memory with the /etc/exports file
#Use exportfs -v to see which shares nfsd is currently exporting

/etc/rc.d/init.d/nfslock - which has 2 parts

/etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs - which has 3 parts

At bare minimum you need to have portmap (or portmapper), mountd (or rpc.mountd), and nfsd (or rpc.nfsd) running; otherwise NFS isn’t running.

#Sample nfs /etc/exports file:
/home/ftp/pub (ro,insecure,all_squash)
/home/ftp/pub adminsvr(rw,insecure,all_squash)

#Above we have two entries, one for everyone, and one
for the adminsvr machine.
