I have NFSv4 Server (on RHELv6.4) and NFS Clients on (CentOSv6.4). Let's say in
/shares/website1 <ip-client-1>(rw,sync,no_subtree_check,no_root_squash) /shares/website2 <ip-client-2>(rw,sync,no_subtree_check,no_root_squash)
Then whenever i made some changes in that (let's say the changes ONLY for
/shares/website1 <ip-client-1>(rw,sync,no_subtree_check,no_root_squash) /shares/xxxxxxxx <ip-client-2>(rw,sync,no_subtree_check,no_root_squash)
Then i always
service nfs restart. And then eventually .. the mount-point on
client-1 got unresponsive (Can't open its files, etc). (Why? Because of RESTART?)
But as described, i only modified the line for
client-2 only. Everything for the
client-1 are still untouched.
So my questions here are:
- Whenever i modify the
/etc/exports, should i
restartthe service or what?
- If i
service nfs restart, why the Mount-Point on other Clients are eventually affected? (For those Client Machines with NO changes made in
That means, whenever i make the changes in
restart the service, i will need to go RE-MOUNT the directories on EVERY CLIENTS in the export list, in order to have the mount-points working again.
Any idea, please?
