Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 453242
guide does not tell you which packages you need to run an NFS server
Last modified: 2016-06-17 17:11:21 EDT
Description of problem:
The Deployment Guide does not detail which packages are required to run an NFS
Maybe a statement added to
saying you need to install nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, and portmap.
This might not be required. I tried to do this on Fedora but could not find
documentation for which packages I needed anywhere. Does Red Hat Enterprise
Linux still use portmap? If not (like Fedora), you need the "rpcbind" package,
instead of "portmap".
Sorry, does REHL 5 still use the portmap service or does it already replaced by the rpcbind service?
Yes... RHEL5 still uses the portmapper
So basically, could I say that the packages nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, and portmap are required to run an NFS server???
To run an NFS server you need to install the packages nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, and portmap.
Please, let me know whether this right. Many thanks
