NFS tutorial - Get the Network File System running
Currently Kernel-NFS is possible on the LS1, LS HG with 2.6-kernel and on the LS2 with the kernel-modules of the stock kernel.
LS1, LS HG (ppc)
Requirements: 2.6-Kernel over andre's webinstaller (kernel modules are included)
Download and untar the package
cd / wget http://www.unet.univie.ac.at/~a0025690/ppc-openlink-2.6-kernel-NFS-V1.tar.gz tar -xvzf ppc-openlink-2.6-kernel-NFS-V1.tar.gz
- modify /etc/exports to your needs
- start the NFS-kernel server by:
(this is a custom startscript...it is not that good developed...it can just start at the moment...but it works)
- to check if the server is really running execute:
rpcinfo -p 127.0.0.1
if this is working then try rpcinfo -p from a remote workstation (running linux or windows with the "services for unix" installed....only then rpcinfo will b available). there is an entry in /etc/hosts.deny ( portmap: ALL ) that prevents this....
so as long as you do not delete the portmap: ALL entry in /etc/hosts.deny, you have to explicit allow some hosts.
add to hosts.allow
if it also works from a different machine then your NFS-Server is running. the only problem should be configuration now.
TIPS: if you edit /etc/exports while the NFS-Server is running, update the nfs-shares by:
(exportfs only shows the current exports..)
if you need to stop NFS:
/etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server stop /etc/init.d/portmap stop
and restart them again by
/etc/init.d/portmap start /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start
to make this start after reboot
ln -s /etc/init.d/start_nfsd.sh /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S60start_nfsd.sh
- @dbox & dreambox guys:
here is a good example for how to configure NFS http://wiki.tuxbox.org/NAS:Buffalo_Linkstation_II#NFS_Server_konfigurieren
If we get the 2.6-Kernel running on the Terastation then we have Kernel-NFS there as well Mindbender 20:17, 10 July 2006 (EDT)
