how can I mount NFS Share as root?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 13, 2014
I want to set up an NFS share i ubuntu 12.04 and mount it from a client as root. To be clear, I need apps not running as root on client machine to be able to write files so that the owner will show as root on server and client can read all files as root. I want to force the seever as always seeting thise reads writes from that client as root , regardless of user on client.
I need to do this all through /etc/exports on server and /etc/fstab on client
I have been struggling with this for days and could really uses some guidance.
Thanks in advance
HOWTO: Mount NFS shares from Ubuntu/Linux in Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 1, 2006
I gave up on Samba several months ago, and switched to using NFS to share folders over my LAN. But one of my family insists on using Windows XP, so I needed to find a solution to allow them to access the NFS shares. This is neatly done by Microsoft themselves, for "free", using their "Windows Services for Unix" setup. My file server is an Edubuntu Dapper (I use LSTP too) with four NFS shares. Please note that this is a basic, get you up and running howto, there is more configuration required and available, especially for the security conscious, which is beyond the scope of this howto.
First off, you need to understand NFS Server and Client for Ubuntu. I followed this guide, and suggest you do the same.
The important part to understand is the syntax for a share
Once you have the nfs server and some shares set up, make a note of the syntax needed to access them from a remote box. Y
VirtualBox: how to NFS mount in Knoppix guest from Slackware host?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 11, 2010
I'm setting up Slackware64 13.1 as a guest on a Slackware64 13.1 host running VirtualBox 3.2.8 PUEL and want to begin by replicating the host's / to the guest.
The idea was to NFS export / from the host, boot Knoppix 6.2, NFS mount in the guest and copy the files but I haven't been able to NFS mount under Knoppix.
At first I tried with NAT networking but NFS is mentioned in the VirtualBox User Guide in the NAT limitations section so I switched to bridged networking. After mounting / did not work, I switched to mounting /home/c/d which is "known good" -- regularly used for syncing with my netbook
On the guest, running Knoppix, networking seems OK. It uses DHCP. I can browse and traceroute LQ by name. ifconfig shows 192.168.168.201 and a 255.255.255.0 netmask. The host has a static IP configuration, 192.168.168.7/24 (confirmed). mount -t nfs 192.168.168.7:/home/c/d /mnt eventually gives "mount system call failed". The -o nfsvers=3 option
[SOLVED] How do I specify which port mount (nfs client) uses to tickle my server?

I have nfs-server installed and running on my Ubuntu 10.04 server. I have some directories exported. I can connect from my Ubuntu 10.04 PC using the commands
Ubuntu Server 14.10 doesn't mount NFS at startup anymore
- date: October 24, 2014
I just updated my server to version 14.10 and I noticed a strange thing:
My NFS Network Shares do not mount anymore at startup. I have 3 shares, that are mounted to /media/... for example /media/serien
So if I cd in that folder after a restart I get:
:~$ cd /media/serien
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Okt 17 15:50 ./
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Okt 17 16:02 ../
But when I do sudo mount -a
the shares get mounted (so obviously it works)
When I then cd back to the folder and ll, everyhing is there as it should be.
So what is wrong with the [email protected]
feature in 14.10? I need to have that, does someone have a solution?

Vagrant fails to mount NFS shared folders because of corrupted /etc/exports. How do I fix that file?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I recently tried to install a VM with vagrant but "vagrant up" always failed with the error:
Mounting NFS shared folders failed. This is most often caused by the NFS
client software not being installed on the guest machine. Please verify
that the NFS client software is properly installed, and consult any resources
specific to the linux distro you're using for more information on how to
NFS client was properly installed on my machine so I looked for other causes of errors and found a blogpost explaining that my /etc/exports might be corrupted. I restored exportsbak (which contains only commented examples), hoping that vagrant would reconfigure that file properly... but it doesn't, and the error is still there.
How can I force vagrant to regenerate that file or fix it? Thanks.

Installing Ubuntu? How easy to go back to Tiger?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 15, 2009
I have a doubt regarding installing Ubuntu (either 8.04 or 8.10) on a PowerBook G4.
I'm pretty sure the answer will "no", but I'd like double check
1. I'd like to install Ubuntu, by wiping the whole HDD, and using it for Ubuntu. Provided I have a Tiger Retail DVD, will I be able to re-install Tiger later, right? With Disk Utility during the install?
2. I have seeing, testing it with the Live CD, that in order to get the wireless adapter running, Ubuntu tries to install a firmware. Would that firmware cripple in any way the future use of the wireless adapter if I install Tiger again?
As usual, TIA
