I have two systems and I need to setup a folder on one of them that is completely read/write-able by the other.
1) How do I setup NFS on the server(s)? It is not installed as an available filesystem/module.
2) Where should I place this folder / what is the conventional place for locating such shared folders?
This is a RHEL5 system.
Error with setting up NFS.
This is what I did on server1 on which I want to share a local folder with server0
In /etc/exports , I added
Enabled nfs and portmap through
Starting portmap: [ OK ]
Starting NFS services: [ OK ]
Starting NFS quotas: [ OK ]
Starting NFS daemon: [ OK ]
Starting NFS mountd: [ OK ]
Now, on server0, I did
1. mkdir /home/els1-share
2. mount 22.214.171.124:/home/els1-share /home/els1-share
which timed out with:
mount: mount to NFS server '126.96.36.199' failed: System Error: Connection timed out.
The IP addresses have been obfuscated, otherwise the output is exact.
