Setup NFS from Oracle Enterprise Linux 6 basic install

After basic install Oracle Enterprise Linux 6, it will not easy to pick up NFS share.

Here is my steps:

1.Install rpcbind and nfs-utils

yum install rpcbind nfs-utils
chkconfig rpcbind on
service rpcbind start


To check rpc info:
rpcinfo -p


To check available nfs mount from nfshost(192.168.1.200 as example)

showmount -e 192.168.1.200


2.Mount nfs manually

# mkdir /nfsbackup
# mount 192.168.1.200:/mnt/test /nfsbackup/


To check mount status:
# df -k
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root
19306716 1503088 16825700 9% /
tmpfs 12371100 0 12371100 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1 495844 53039 417205 12% /boot
/dev/sdb1 10320184 193872 9602076 2% /var/log
/dev/sdc1 51605436 22952412 26031620 47% /pgsql
/dev/sdd1 30961664 4958796 24430108 17% /tmp
/dev/sdf1 41279536 5682164 33500492 15% /home
192.168.201.200:/mnt/test
511967200 32 511967168 1% /nfsbackup


3.Mounting NFS File Systems using /etc/fstab

The general syntax for the line in /etc/fstab is as follows:
server:/usr/local/pub    /pub   nfs    rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr


A sample /etc/fstab line to mount an NFS export looks like the following example:
192.168.1.200:/mnt/test    /nfsbackup      nfs     hard    0       0
