Thread: /etc/sysconfig/nfs docs?

  1. /etc/sysconfig/nfs docs?


    i don't have an /etc/sysconfig/nfs file on my system. evidently this
    is how one tunes the nfs server. have have the nfs-utils rpm.

    [root@fs2 init.d]# rpm -q -a | grep nfs
    nfs-utils-1.0.6-80.EL4
    nfs-utils-lib-1.0.6-8.z1

    i can't find anything that directly speaks of what can and can't be
    in this file.

    thanks.

    If your file looks like mine, the file itself documents what can go
    into it. It consists of comments and options that are commented out.

    You can also see which scripts use all the options by:

    # cd /etc/rc.d/init.d
    # fgrep -l /etc/sysconfig/nfs *

    (You have to be used to reading shell scripts to make the most of this.)

    i don't have the file. it's not there and zero length, it's flat
    not there at all. my attempts to find one online have been less
    than comforting. i found something but i'm convinced there's at least
    one option not documented in it, and that example was, uh, 3-4 years
    old, so i'm not inclined to use it.

    thanks for the reply, though. can you tell what rpm is supposed to
    be responsible for /etc/sysconfig/nfs? reading between the lines from
    the web makes it seem like it should come from nfs-utils, but....

    I'm sorry about not reading your original post carefully enough. The

    You could examine these scripts to see if they make use of any definitions
    not documented above. On my systems, the file is used by

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/{nfs,nfslock,rpcgssd,rpcidmapd,rpcsvcgssd}

    [snip]

    okay, that file looks just like the one i found on the net.
    but it looks incomplete in that there's no way to turn off
    nfs version 4. the answer is obvious enough, of course, but
    i'm wondering whether that file is out of date in other
    respects. anybody know?

    in other news -- i'm watching the log files. last night the
    server had hiccups every 2 hours. okay, 2 hours + a minute
    or two. hiccup == the client would say "not responding still
    trying" and then recover in maybe a 45-60 secs, something
    like that.

    what does THAT mean??? nothing is happening on two hour
    intervals that i can think of. it's not a cron job.

    /etc/sysconfig/nfs is used to set environment variables that are used by
    /etc/init.d/nfs.

    So if you read through /etc/init.d/nfs and find any vars you want to
    set, you can put them in /etc/sysconfig/nfs. Mostly they're just
    options that are passed to various commands in the script.
