mount Linux sharing folder on another linux machine using nfs

I have five Linux machine, I want to create one folder on one Linux machine and share this folder on remaining Linux machine? how do we do?

Use NFS. I don’t want explain more about NFS. Here I am going to show how do we do?

If you want to share one folder of linux (1) machine,

[root@siebelfs ~]# mkdir /test

Create test file

[root@siebelfs test]# vi test.conf
azar

and then Save it.

You need to check it out Whether portmap and nfs running or not

[root@siebelfs ~]#  chkconfig --list portmap
portmap         0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig portmap on
[root@siebelfs ~]#  chkconfig --list portmap
portmap         0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
[root@siebelfs ~]# ps ax | grep portmap
 3228 ?        Ss     0:00 portmap
 4491 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep portmap

For NFS

[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig --list nfs
nfs             0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off
[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig nfs on
[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig --list nfs
nfs             0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
And then, restart portmap and nfs service
[root@siebelfs ~]# service portmap restart
Stopping portmap:                                          [  OK  ]
Starting portmap:                                          [  OK  ]
[root@siebelfs ~]# service nfs restart
Shutting down NFS mountd:                                  [FAILED]
Shutting down NFS daemon:                                  [FAILED]
Shutting down NFS quotas:                                  [FAILED]
Shutting down NFS services:                                [FAILED]
Starting NFS services:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting NFS quotas:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS daemon:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS mountd:                                       [  OK  ]
[root@siebelfs ~]# ps ax | grep nfs
 4664 ?        S<     0:00 [nfsd4]
 4666 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4667 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4668 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4669 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4670 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4671 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4672 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4673 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4691 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep nfs
[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig --list nfs
nfs             0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
[root@siebelfs ~]# ps ax | grep mountd
 4676 ?        Ss     0:00 rpc.mountd
 4694 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep mountd
[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig --list nfs
nfs             0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
[root@siebelfs ~]# ps ax | grep portmap
 4585 ?        Ss     0:00 portmap
 4699 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep portmap

Now We need to add shared folder directory in /etc/exports file like below , Here I have used four linux machine, If I missed any ipaddress of client linux machine
you can not able to access this folder.

[root@siebelfs ~]# vi /etc/exports
/test ipaddress(rw)
/test ipaddress(rw)
/test ipaddress(rw)
/test ipaddress(rw)
and then save it.
Again restart nfs service only.
[root@siebelfs ~]# service nfs restart
Shutting down NFS mountd:                                  [  OK  ]
Shutting down NFS daemon:                                  [  OK  ]
Shutting down NFS quotas:                                  [  OK  ]
Shutting down NFS services:                                [  OK  ]
Starting NFS services:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting NFS quotas:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS daemon:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS mountd:                                       [  OK  ]

Now Go to another linux machine (client).
configure portmap and nfs like above. but don’t add any line in /etc/exports file.(in case if you want to
share this machine folder for other client machine , you can add line like above).
here 10.1.x.xx — ipaddress of shared folder machine.

[root@siebelas ~]# mkdir /test
[root@siebelas ~]# mount -t nfs -o rw 10.1.X.XX:/test /test
[root@siebelas ~]# cd /test
[root@siebelas test]# ls
test.conf
