Running an NFS Server in a Zone

The NFS server package svc:/network/nfs/server:default must be installed in the zone to create NFS shares in a zone.

The sys_share privilege can be prohibited in the zone configuration to prevent NFS sharing within a zone. See Table 10–1.

Restrictions and limitations include the following:

  • Cross-zone LOFS mounts cannot be shared from zones.

  • File systems mounted within zones cannot be shared from the global zone.

  • NFS over Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) is not supported in zones.

  • Oracle Sun Cluster HA for NFS (HANFS) failover is not supported in zones.
