Re: [Linux-cluster] proper way to setup NFS


The "correct" way, as far as I understand it, is to:

1. Add IP.
2. Add your FS resource, be that a "File System" or "GFS" resource
3. Make/Add an "NFS Export" resource as a child of the resource from step
1, the name is purely symbolic
4. Make/Add an "NFS Client" resource as a child of the newly created "NFS
Export" resource, enter the IP/IP range/hostnames you wish to access this
resource (same as field 2 in /etc/exports) and the export options you want
to use (the part in parenthese or field 3 in /etc/exports) in
corresponding fields of the "NFS Client" configuration dialog box.
5. Save, (Re)Start Service

Now, don't quote me on that as being the "correct" way but it did work for
