1. Install required packages
sudo apt update sudo apt install nfs-kernel-server
2. Add shared locations in
Lets start editing the file
/etc/exports and add the following line
<location to share> <host which consumes>(<sharing options>)
For example in my case, I want to share
/media/nas to any host
0.0.0.0/0 with read write access
rw. You can find further information about options at the end of this post.
... # /srv/nfs4/homes gss/krb5i(rw,sync,no_subtree_check) # /media/nas 0.0.0.0/0(rw,sync,no_subtree_check)
3. Restart the the NFS server
sudo systemctl restart nfs-kernel-server
I’m a nerd, I need more…
More information about options
ro: mount as read only
rw: mount as read and write.
no_root_squash: give the remote user the permission of root. Don’t do it unless required.
subtree_check: Host should verify the location of files and directories.
no_subtree_check: Host should not check the location of the files being accessed.
sync: Ensures that the host keeps directory in sync
async: Ignore sync checks to increase performance
Adding hosts with different permissions
