How to practice setting up of NFS server and NFS client on a laptop?


Hi,

I am a newbie and I want to practice setting up of NFS server and NFS client on Redhat using virtual machine on my laptop.
I dont think setting up NFS should not be a problem but how do I replicate a NFS client. I just have one laptop. Is it possible to replicate both server and client using the same laptop? If so, can anyone tell what tools i can use to perform the above for practicing.

You can install multiple systems on a virtual machine. Make sure you give each of them static IP addresses (bridged networking in VirtualBox). As long as you've got enough RAM to run them simultaneously, you'll be fine. NFS doesn't need GUI - it'll save you some memory.

Thanks sycamorex. I will try and install a new vm. I am using vmware server 2.0 and I know that we can install a new vm by just copying some files from the exiting vm. It's .vmdk file, right? If so, are there any other files that needs to be copied to a create a new vm. Thanks!

For RH, here's the Admin HOWTO http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion/index.html
Enjoy

BTW, RH comes with a VM mgr called Xen, although they are now moving on to KVM.
Check the version of RH you've got (cat /etc/*release*) and the repos.
