20 lines or less to NFS !

I was looking through the Linux Magazine links on facebook again and came across another nifty little topic that is fairly usable in almost every scenario, NFS.  I thought it was funny that I found several blog postings that had lots of replies that the steps outlined didn’t work !  I know I am a stickler, but see I told you that was the case… this one is functional on CentOS v5.5… So in less than 20 lines, you can share all day on your Linux boxes…

# Server-side:
yum install -y nfs-utils nfs-utils-lib
echo “/home/software,sync)” >> /etc/exports
echo “/home/scripts,sync)” >> /etc/exports
echo “portmap:” >> /etc/hosts.allow
exportfs -a -v
for i in nfs portmap; do chkconfig $i on; done
for i in tcp udp; do iptables -A INPUT -p $i -m $i -m multiport –dports 1110,2049 -j ACCEPT; done
iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables
service portmap start
service nfs start
# Client-side:
service portmap start
chkconfig portmap on
cd /
mkdir fx6-share
mount /fx6-share
# Make it stick:
echo “ /fx6-share         nfs     defaults        0 0” >> /etc/fstab
echo “ /fx6-scripts         nfs     defaults        0 0” >> /etc/fstab
mount -a

    I just noticed that this is now my 2nd (in a row no less) post of a “20 lines or less” script… LOL Maybe I am on to something here… I will now challenge myself to keep this one going and also try to go back and re-do all the rest in this fashion… that should be interesting 🙂
