Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to mount a directory from one server (XX.2.6) to another (XX.2.100)
1. Installed NFSD
2. Changed /etc/exports file - added : /opt/data/ 192.168.2.6/24(rw)
3. Added - ALL : 192.168.2.6/24 in hosts.allow
4. Executed exportfs -ra
5. Executed the mount command as - mount 192.168.2.6:/opt/data/ /opt/data/
It gives me the following error - mount: 192.168.2.6:/opt/data/ failed, reason given by server: Permission denied
when I check the /var/log/messages file I get the following error -
Mar 12 14:35:03 192.168.2.100 automount: create_udp_client:98: hostname lookup failed: Operation not permitted
Mar 12 14:35:03 192.168.2.100 automount: create_tcp_client:328: hostname lookup failed: Operation not permitted
Mar 12 14:35:03 192.168.2.100 automount: lookup_mount: exports lookup failed for sf
Mar 12 14:35:03 192.168.2.100 automount: update_negative_cache: key "sf" not found in map.
Kindly help, cant figure out what is exactly wrong!? Am i missing something?
Those first 2 msgs look like DNS issues.
Check the firewalls on both systems, also hosts.allow on server for DNS (bind) requests.
Also, if you're not using NFSv4, you'll need rpc and other services running
