INSTALLATION OF NFS SERVER AND How to Mount Network Attached Storage



Let your system ip address:xxx.xxx.x.xx
 
nas ip address:xxx.xxx.x.xx.
 
1.If rpcbind corrupted in your system first remove it.
#yum remove rpcbind
2.Download and install NFS
#yum install nfs* -y
3.Verify that the nfs services are installed.
#rpm -qa nfs-utils
4.Verify that the rpcbind package is installed.
#rpm -qa rpcbind
Note:Network attached storage which i am mounting only runs on Network File system version 3 and it also needs Portmap which is the resource of rpcbind.
5.Edit the exports file to export any directory/file you want to.
#vi /etc/exports
/tmp xxx.xxx.x.xx/24(rw,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)
after typing this save it by :wq.
/tmp:Directory you want to export to nas.
xxx.xxx.x.xx/24:IP address of nas.
rw:giving read and write permission to nas.
Sync:Synchronize shared directory whenever create new files/folders.
no_root_squash:Enable root privilege  (Users can read, write and delete the files in the shared directory)
6.Edit fstab file.
#vi /etc/fstab
Append below line.
xxx.xxx.x.xx:/disk /tmp nfs defaults 0 0
After typing this save it by :wq


7.Restart the services NFS and Portmap.
#service nfs restart
#service portmap restart


8.Check NAS is in export list of your system ip address.
#showmount -e xxx.xxx.x.xx
9.Mount nas through this command.
#mount -v -t nfs -o vers=3 xxx.xxx.x.xx:/disk /tmp
disk:The directory in nas which you want to mount.
10.After this check nas is mounted.
#df -h
hence mounted.
