Setting NFS Server on Ubuntu Container

TurnToJPG -->

Since there are some strange problems in my ArchLinux(Physical Machine), its nfs server will be ignored by the embedded board, while my joggler which runs ubuntu12.04 acts OK. So I try to find a sufficient way for dealing with this issue.

Container Configuration

I’ve installed Ubuntu_Container which holds 12.04 in my physical machine. So the nfs server would be configured in this container.

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server portmap nfs-common

Then edit the /srv/nfs4, and export its configuration in /etc/exports:

/srv/nfs4 *(rw,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)

Everytime you want to start the nfs service, just type:

$ /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart
$ /etc/init.d/portmap restart


Client run:

sudo mount -t nfs 1xx.xx.xx.xx:/srv/nfs4/ /mnt


The correct parameter for mounting the nfs server is:

setenv bootargs console=ttyO0,115200n8 root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot= ip=

Then you won’t have other problems, even the physical machine could also use the nfs filesystem.
