nfs is a big problem
 
Dear Fellows

Hi,

I have 2 linux machines , i wanna to share my files using nfs but i m getting some problems

X1 : 192.168.7.132
x2 : 192.168.7.133

Assume i m logging on both machine as a root admin

On machine X1 my etc/exports files has the following settings

/home/bravo/testnfs 192.168.7.132(rw,no_root_squash)


bravo is my user name and testnfs is a folder in it


now my other machine X2

when i apply following mount command on my machine X2 it give me error

Reason give by server : permisson denied

mount 192.168.7.132:/home/bravo/nfstest /home/charlie/nfstest

charlie is my user on machine X2 and a folder nfstest is also exist in its home directory.

Is there any help.

waiting for your positive reply
Thanks

x1 must allow x2's ip so your exports line should be

/home/bravo/testnfs 192.168.7.133(rw,no_root_squash)

in x1 /etc/exports

What Distro are you running? SuSE does a reverse lookup before it will allow mounting. So there must be a host or DNS entry. RH/FC does not

On X1 bravo has a user# uid and a group# gid which are probably different from the uid/gid s of Charlie on X2. The issue really isn't with nfs but your basic file permissions and where you are trying to mount the common directory.

Very good, nfs works better under a nis or ldap authentication process where all users are located centrally

If you go and change UID's on your systems, don't forget that the file ownerships will change too so you will need to do a chown.
