NFS Server / Client

This is the notes from my setup.

Server

Export

I am setting up server for NFSv4 without Security IP based access list.
NOTE : Match your uid with anonuid

| /etc/exports
/home   192.168.1.0/24(rw,sync,insecure,root_squash,no_subtree_check,fsid=0)
/home/download      192.168.1.4(rw,nohide,sync,insecure,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check,anonuid=1000,anongid=100)
/home/movies    192.168.1.4(rw,nohide,sync,insecure,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check,anonuid=1000,anongid=100)
/home/net/Pictures  192.168.1.4(rw,nohide,sync,insecure,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check,anonuid=1000,anongid=100)

NFS Ports

Now change following settings.
If any of the variable not exists please add as new line.

| /etc/sysconfig/nfs
MOUNTD_NFS_V1="no"
MOUNTD_NFS_V2="no"
RPCNFSDARGS="-N 2 -N 3 -U"

Firewall

Add Following lines to your firewall rules.

| /etc/sysconfig/iptables
-A INPUT -s 192.168.1.4 -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 2049 -j ACCEPT

Services

Now restart / start all modified services.
In new Fedora it is some thing like as follow
Some server require to be started in specific order.

  • systemctl restart rpcbind.service
  • systemctl restart iptables.service
  • systemctl restart nfs-idmap.service
  • systemctl restart nfs-server.service

Client

To setup client to mount exported FS use following.

| /etc/fstab
192.168.1.5:download /opt/download nfs4 proto=tcp,intr,rw 0 0
192.168.1.5:movies      /opt/movies nfs4 proto=tcp,intr,rw 0 0
192.168.1.5:net/Pictures /opt/Picture nfs4 proto=tcp,intr,rw 0 0
192.168.1.5:net/Music /opt/Music nfs4 proto=tcp,intr,rw 0 0

You can refer following manual for further information.
Since all these is some how i gathered from these documentation.
