To create a NFS share in Solaris 10 it’s very easy steps as follows. First we need to share the filesystem using NFS filesystem type then we need to append the entry in sharetab.

In client side we need to mount it

# share -F nfs /dbbackup01

# cat /etc/dfs/sharetab

In client side if we need any special write permission we have to specify those required parameters during mount as shown below.

# mkdir /dbbackup01/

# mount -F nfs -o rw,bg,hard,nointr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,actimeo=0,vers=3 /dbbackup01/

#df -h

That’s it we have done with sharing and mounting a NFS filesystem in Solaris 10
