I’ve moved all my disk mounts on my HP Proliant Server over from Samba to NFS.
The steps below are for a simple setup used in my own home and by no means secure.
sudo apt-get install rpcbind nfs-kernel-server
Setup Configuration File
sudo vim /etc/exports # Added the following line to the file (add additional lines for new shares) # # - Path to share: replace with path you'd like to share e.g. /mnt/shareme # - Client ip or subnet: replace with the ip address of the client or a # collection of ip address using subnet masks e.g. 10.1.1.1 or 10.1.1.0/24 # - YYYY: anonuid = maps all anonymous connections to a uid local to the server # - ZZZZ: anongid = maps all anonymous connections to a gid local to the server <path to share> <client ip or subnet>(rw,sync,no_subtree_check,insecure,anonuid=<YYYY>,anongid=<ZZZZ>)
Restart NFS Server
sudo service nfs-kernel-server restart
