NFS Stands for Network File System , is used to share files between systems.In this Tutorail I will tell you how to install and configure NFS Server and NFS Client

In here I am using 2 Redhat 6 systems

Server   : webserver.dcageek.com &

Client    : desktop.dcageek.com &

NFS Server Configuration

Step 1: Install NFS using yum command
                #yum install nfs* -y

Step 2: Check the System statup links for nfs  on 2 3 5

                #chkconfig –list nfs
                If it is OFF turn ON
                #chkconfig nfs on

Step 3: Create a shared Directory in server
                #mkdir stuff
                #chmod 755 stuff

Step 4: Add the shared folder location in exports file
                #vi /etc/exports
           Add the following line in exports file

               /stuff ro,sync,no_root_squash,no_all_squash)

Step 5: Restart the NFS Service 
                #service nfs restart

NFS Client Configuration

Step 6: Install NFS in client
Step 7: Start the Service
                #service nfs start

Step 8: Check  the shared directory is available or not

                #showmount -e

Step 9: Create a Directory for mounting the shared directory of  server

               #mkdir /nfs
Step 10: Mount the nfs share

               #mount –t nfs  /nfs

Step 11: For Verication use mount or df command
                # df –h
                # mount

Check the files in nfs folder ,that are created inside stuff in server

Auto Mounting at Startup
Every time we need to give the command  for mounting, instead we can auto mount at the time of startup

For that add the following entry in fstab
                #vi /etc/fstab

           /nfs       nfs      defaults   0 0
Save it and restart the system
Check it by giving df  command


That’s it NFS Server and Client Configured …………….
