How to share storage space in RHEL 3.0


Hi,

I have a RHEL 3.0 server with a newly added raid 5 array of ~ 150GB that I have mounted on the server as /data. What is the best way to allow this space to be used on the network by NIS users on other Linux hosts?

Any suggestions are appreciated..

Thanks

For linux to linux, you could just start nfs and put the path the the share in the /etc/exports.

This is an example of /etc/exports so ltsp clients can access it.

/opt/ltsp/i386 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0(ro,no_root_squash,sync)
/var/opt/ltsp/swapfiles 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0(rw,no_root_squash,async)

Thanks for the info..
So is NFS a package that is readily available on RHEL Server 3.0?

I think it comes default on pretty much every linux distro.
It's a service so you can run the command:
# chkconfig --list nfs
nfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off

That shows it stopped at all run levels for now so I could run these commands:
# chkconfig --level 345 nfs on
# service nfs start
Starting NFS services: [ OK ]
Starting NFS quotas: [ OK ]
Starting NFS daemon: [ OK ]
Starting NFS mountd: [ OK ]

Now the service shows as being on for levels 3, 4 and 5 . That means they will be running even after a reboot.
# chkconfig --list nfs
nfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off

If you make changes to the /etc/exports file, you probably should restart it...
# service nfs restart

So once I set up the NFS service with the /data directory share from the server, how would users on the other linux hosts access this share to start putting their files on it?

Thanks
