nfs-server.service active but exited?


Hi all,

Alas, I am at the end of my rope with this.

I'm trying to create a random share on my linux box using NFS that I can access from my Mac - all seems to be going ok apart from the fact that I cannot access my share from my Mac.

Now I think the issue is NFS-Server.service.

when I type "sudo systemctl status nfs-server.service" the return I get is;

Code:
nfs-server.service - NFS Server
	  Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/nfs-server.service; enabled)
	  Active: active (exited) since Wed, 06 Jun 2012 22:56:41 +0100; 10min ago
	 Process: 2051 ExecStopPost=/usr/sbin/exportfs -f (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
	 Process: 2048 ExecStop=/usr/sbin/rpc.nfsd 0 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
	 Process: 2073 ExecStartPost=/usr/lib/nfs-utils/scripts/nfs-server.postconfig (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
	 Process: 2060 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/rpc.nfsd $RPCNFSDARGS ${RPCNFSDCOUNT} (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
	 Process: 2057 ExecStartPre=/usr/sbin/exportfs -r (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
	 Process: 2054 ExecStartPre=/usr/lib/nfs-utils/scripts/nfs-server.preconfig (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/nfs-server.service
Now then, from what I can see is the service is active but exited? - and for some reason no matter what I try and do I can't seem to get it to run.

I think this is the root of my problems.

Does anyone know what I can do to make that run?

I've tried "sudo systemctl enable nfs-server.service" and likewise restart to no avail.

Please someone help!!

Cheers
Alex

P.S. I'm running Fedora 17.

Few bits of additional information;

my /etc/exports file looks like this;

Code:
/home/alex/shared 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0(rw,insecure,no_root_squash)
and SELinux is set to permissive.

I'm a bit confused--have you tried just "sudo service start nfsd.service" ?

(In case you don't know--"enable" is the rough equivalent of "chkconfig on"--it ensures the thing will be started on next boot but doesn't do anything right now.)

I've just tried that and the reponse I've had is;

Code:
sudo service start nfsd.service
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  nfsd.service start.service
Unknown operation nfsd.service
Cheers

i think you have to have a specific ip address in there dont you? Instead of just .0.0
After you edit /etc/exports do an
Code:
exportfs -ra
so that nfs will look at it again.

Thanks for all your suggestions.

In the end I reinstalled Fedora 17 compeltely from scratch using the DVD resource rather than the live desktop edition and selected all the packages I wanted.

I started from scratch with the NFS share.

The nfs-server.service is still showing as active(exited) but for some reason when mounting the share on my Mac its working perfectly.

I just to work out what ports are required for the firewall so that I can re-enable it.

Thanks
Al
