I am able to set up a NFS server and client. I am not able to grant write access to the clients.
I would like to know where are the optimal locations for the share folder on the NFS server and the mount folder on the NFS clients and how to give the client folder write access.
Using yast, I created the server and shared the folder at /home/user1/shareNFS. Through dolphin, the share folder was set to rwx for user, group and owner. I created the client and mounted the share folder at /home/shareNFS.
This was a poor choice. It crashed all user access on the client. Fortunately I was able to log in through root, remove the NFS client and restore user access.
I recreated the NFS client and mounted the share folder at /home/user1/shareNFS. This creates a read-only folder accessible to all users on the client.
There must be a better approach for share folder placement. One thought is to create a unique user, such as “share” on the server and client and use /home/share/shareNFS as the share folders. This does not resolve the write privilege issue.
Thank you in advance for your help.
