1) lssrc -g nfs, /etc/rc.nfs  and /etc/exports

2) startsrc -g nfs

3) /etc/exports is a configuration file, not a directory.

4) showmount -e, /usr/sbin/lsnfsexp

5) smitty inetdconf and smitty otherserv

'exportfs' is the command to be used after you modify /etc/exports, or to use any exports file like below:

# exportfs -f  /anypath/anyexportfile

# exportfs -u /anymountpoint   ( to unexport the filesystem )

4 question is void after nfs is stopped, ls -ld shows directory permissions.
5. /etc/inetd.conf ; refresh -s inetd
