Description Murray McAllister 2008-06-28 09:53:28 UTC
Description of problem: The Deployment Guide does not detail which packages are required to run an NFS server. Additional info: Maybe a statement added to <http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/en-US/RHEL510/Deployment_Guide/s2-nfs-how-daemons.html> saying you need to install nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, and portmap. This might not be required. I tried to do this on Fedora but could not find documentation for which packages I needed anywhere. Does Red Hat Enterprise Linux still use portmap? If not (like Fedora), you need the "rpcbind" package, instead of "portmap". Cheers.

Comment 4 Florian Nadge 2010-05-24 12:07:18 UTC
Sorry, does REHL 5 still use the portmap service or does it already replaced by the rpcbind service?
Comment 7 Steve Dickson 2010-05-26 17:05:30 UTC
Yes... RHEL5 still uses the portmapper
Comment 8 Florian Nadge 2010-05-28 11:50:36 UTC
So basically, could I say that the packages nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, and portmap are required to run an NFS server??? Thanks
Comment 9 Florian Nadge 2010-06-09 09:47:19 UTC
Will add: To run an NFS server you need to install the packages nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, and portmap. Please, let me know whether this right. Many thanks

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Verified: Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-Deployment_Guide-5-web-en-US-6-24.el5 " To use NFS on your system, make sure you have the nfs-utils, nfs-utils-lib, and portmap packages installed. "
