Phbc50's Nfsd Beta Pkg

Support section for FREESCO v0.3.x 3rd Party Packages

Postby jamtat » Fri Apr 06, 2007 12:29 pm

I've finally loaded phcb50's nfsd beta package ( nfsd_2.2beta47_phbc50) for sharing files on my LAN. I can report that it works, but it seems there may be some kinks. First, I think there may be something amiss in the rc_nfs script. When I issue rc_nfs restart, it shuts down all the services properly but does not restart them all. I have to run rc_nfs restart again to get all the services to start again.

I must admit I'm having a bit of difficulty understanding what, of the problems I'm seeing, is caused by my own ignorance regarding nfs and how it works and what might be a bug or other program issue. I can mount my Freesco directory just fine after having gone through several experimental editings of the exports, hosts.allow and hosts.deny files. But I don't think I've set things up as securely as they need to be. That still needs some work. I looked over documentation online last night for a couple of hours but am still not quite "getting it." Could you provide any tips for configuring my system phbc50, so that I can better identify any package problems for you?

Sorry for the late reply.
I did not have such problem when using nfs and Ubuntu, however it can be that you tried to stop the daemon when a share was still in use and then the program could not be stopped.

I used several howtos when configuring nfs to work on freesco, like

Try to add a 'sleep 1' statement at the end of the stop section in rc_nfsd. It is likely that the killall has not finished when the script tries to start the daemons again.
