    Default How to configure NFS server in openSuSe 12.1?

    Hello,

    Just Googled on how to configure NFS server in OpenSuSe. Got handbook for 11.4 but following commands are not working in my OpenSuSe >>
    Code:
    chkconfig --add nfsserver
    /etc/init.d/nfsserver start

    I have installed nfs server package using following command ~~ >>> yast2 -i nfs-kernel-server
    If I use chkconfig nfs command I get out put as ~~ >> nfs off

    Any1 can tell steps to configure nfs server on OpenSuSe 12.1 ?


    Thanks,
    Amey.

    Use YAST.

    nfs != nfsserver

    As Carlos says, if you use YaST you'll find it much easier.

    I needed to install the YaST module for the nfs server first (yast2-nfs-server). By default there was only the module for the nfs client.

    In my case I still just see "NFS Client" in yast2 under "Network Services".
    Any hints how to proceed?

    nfs != nfsserver command not working. Shows following error >>> If 'nfs' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf nfs

    Install the package yast2-nfs-server, close and reopen YaST and you should see "NFS-Server" (depending on your localization the name may be a little different).

    Install the yast server module. Start the software manager module, search
    for "yast" and you will see all the available modules, installed or not.
    Install those you like.

    It is not a command, it is a phrase.

    Sorry for late reply, was busy with other project.

    Thanks for the tip Carlos.
    I was able to install NFS server.

    Now I can see 'NFS Server' in Yast.
    Now,I want to configure it.
    In this case all I need to do is just add directories in 'export'?
    And what is wild card?
    And how can I mount created nfs mount point on remote linux machine running NFS client?

    Regards,
    Amey.

    You should take some time to explore this small document, it might be insightful: NFS - openSUSE

    It has the basic rundown of what to do to get NFS running and how to connect/mount the NFS.

    basically, yes.

    I'm not sure what you refer to.

    Using the yast nfs client module, for example :-)


    Have a look at the documentation:


    Chapter 14. Sharing File Systems with NFS


    A note: first step is to open the firewall, if not subsequent steps may fail (browsing for
    servers).
