Chapter 2

Network File System Administration (Tasks)

This chapter provides information about how to perform such NFS administration tasks as setting up NFS services, adding new file systems to share, and mounting file systems. The chapter also covers the use of the Secure NFS system and the use of WebNFS functionality. The last part of the chapter includes troubleshooting procedures and a list of some of the NFS error messages and their meanings.

Your responsibilities as an NFS administrator depend on your site's requirements and the role of your computer on the network. You might be responsible for all the computers on your local network, in which instance you might be responsible for determining these configuration items:

Maintaining a server after it has been set up involves the following tasks:

Remember, a computer can be both a server and a client. So, a computer can be used to share local file systems with remote computers and to mount remote file systems.

Note - If your system has zones enabled and you want to use this feature in a non-global zone, see Oracle Solaris 11.1 Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management for more information.
