Solaris Network File System (NFS)

I have the following question regarding to the Solaris NFS.
1. How to ensure NFS not in use? And configuration files?
2. How to enable NFS? What is the command?
3. Is /etc/exports the only export directory?
4. How to know the current access options of the exported directories?

As far as I remember, the command to enable NFS in Solaris is:
/etc/init.d/nfs.server start
and to disable it
/etc/init.d/nfs.server stop

/etc/exports is the only place that the exported directories are defined.

Once /etc/exports is configured then export the directories with the command
exportfs -a

To unexport them use:
exportfs -ua

To see what is exported just type:
exportfs
there may be a more expansive version which gives more detail with
exportfs -v
That's the Linux version but it's probably generic UNIX!

Actually, on Solaris, shares are defined in /etc/dfs/dfstab.

There are some associated commands as well.

share, unshare, shareall and unshareall.

You can use share/unshare to share and unshare volumes via NFS at any time without them being persistent upon restart of the service or reboot of the machine.

If you want persistent shares, you would add them to the /etc/dfs/dfstab file.

you would use shareall/unshareall to effectively activate/deactivate the shares defined in /etc/dfs/dfstab during system run time.

Ah yes, I'd forgotten Sun's dfstab - but I think I remembered the enable/disable commands correctly!

By the way, there's an excellent book called "UNIX System Administration Handbook" by Evi Nemeth, Garth Snyder, Scott Seebass and Trent R. Hein which covers many flavours of UNIX.  Unfortunately mine's gone walkabout!  :-(
