I'm trying to start nfs service in my SLES.

I have my /etc/exports like this:

/var/share/testbed *(ro)

When I run service nfs start, it says:

Not starting NFS client services - no NFS found in /etc/fstab:

For service nfs status, it says:

Checking for mounted nfs shares (from /etc/fstab):idmapd not running

'service nfs' (/etc/init.d/nfs) is the NFS client. To start the NFS server, you have to use service nfsserver start

You might need to install nfs-kernel-server package (unless it is already installed).
