To set a FreeBSD machine up as a NFS server, add the following lines to
mountd_enable="YES" nfs_server_enable="YES" rpcbind_enable="YES" rpc_lockd_enable="YES" rpc_statd_enable="YES" mountd_flags="-r"
/storage is a single mount, you will need to define the same directories exactly the same for all the different permissions you want to define in
/etc/exports. For example:
/storage/downloads /storage/backups/esxi -ro -network 10.1.1.0 -mask 255.255.255.0 /storage/downloads /storage/backups/esxi -maproot=root -network 10.1.1.2 -mask 255.255.255.255
It would be invalid if the second line had only
/storage/downloads as it will cause the first entry to be ignored by the parser.
To apply your changes, restart
# service mountd restart
showmount should show both exports:
# showmount -e Exports list on localhost: /storage/downloads 10.1.1.0 10.1.1.2 /storage/backups/esxi 10.1.1.0 10.1.1.2
To use NFS, ensure the firewall is configured so that NFS, mountd, and RPC Bind can communicate.
# firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=nfs # firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=mountd # firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=rpc-bind # firewall-cmd --reload

writing fd to kernel failed: errno 111
If you get kernel errors similar to:
rpc.nfsd: writing fd to kernel failed: errno 111 (Connection refused)
You need to start the
# /etc/init.d/rpcbind start
fcntl() failed - No locks available
While attempting to get Dovecot with LDAP authentication working, I've ran into the following error:
dovecot: Feb 22 22:43:02 Error: IMAP(leo): fcntl() failed with file /home/leo/Maildir/dovecot.index.log: No locks available dovecot: Feb 22 22:43:02 Error: IMAP(leo): mail_index_wait_lock_fd() failed with file /home/leo/Maildir/dovecot.index.log: No locks available
The /home directory is a automounted NFS share from a remote server.
To resolve this issue, ensure that
nfslock is running on both the server and client machine.
# service nfslock start ## or # systemctl start nfs-lock
