palisetty;

You can't exclude all websites---some of them are fora just like LQ---like this one (which seems to be exactly the question you are asking):

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=736326 (I found this by just plugging those two variable names into Google.)

PLEASE--when you say something like this, tell us exactly what you don't understand.

The websites are written by folks who have the knowledge, just like folks here. You say it's not homework, but all of your previous posts HAVE been homework, and this certainly sounds like a textbook-style question.

If it's not, what system problems are you having, relating to those commands?? We'll be glad to help you through them.

You can also read the man page for exports....

Thumbs up HI pixellany and TBone

Hi pixellany,

Its the explaination given by my sir,

he gave like this

root_squash - Maps UID 0 AND GID 0 TO the values specified by anonuid and anongid.
no_root_squash - Allows normal access by root
all_squash - maps all uid's and gid's to their anonymous versions. useful for supporting untrusted single-user hosts.
Pixellany i did not understand whats that at all.

Regrding TBone, sir i have taken very less help for my homework. Not all i asked is homework. I am under training for admin so asked some commands how they work thats it. Thanks.

Ok...it was "given by your sir". Do you mean your teacher? He explained it, and it's in your textbooks. If you're having problems grasping the material, that's a conversation you need to have with your teacher.

If you're "under training for admin", you should know the basic concepts and terminology...this is YOUR homework...YOU are the one that needs to know it and understand it, not us.

We keep asking you questions, such as I did when I posted. You said in your first post

Quote:
I swear its not homework
And yet here it is. I asked a question in response, as do MANY others to your posts, and you either ignore them or give some other answer.

If this ISN'T homework, what TECHNICAL ISSUE are you having, regarding these options, and we'll help you through it...that's what I said in my first response.

I don't believe it...mainly because you just admitted "Sir explained in the class". Classwork=HOMEWORK.

And as I said before, people ask you questions, and you ignore them. Read carefully:

Well?? I've asked this three times...and you still haven't answered it. Pixellany gave you a web site that mirrors what your 'sir' told you.

I'll take that as my cue to close this.

palisetty;

You are not the typical "homework troll", and I think you'll eventually be a contributor here. Please understand that when you post questions that show no evidence of effort on your part, you are going to get hassled a bit.

When someone is told "not to supply websites" and then discovers a site with the precise and complete answer, I think you can understand how they might get annoyed.

Looking at the INTENT of the rules and de-facto practices here, most of your stuff is in fact in the "homework" category.
