I inherited a small network where each machine is an NFS server/client, and exports a /data folder to all the other machines. I've added a machine that I'd like to have the same functionality, and updated the networks /etc/fstab and /etc/exports accordingly.
However upon reboot, the new machine does not automatically create the export table, so I have to manually
sudo exportfs -a for that machine, then
sudo mount -a on the clients to get them connected. I've already added the shares to /etc/exports, as some articles have suggested. What is the default behavior for NFS? It doesn't appear that the old machines have a /etc/profile line for exporting the shares ... at least not that I can find.
How can I get the new machine, which is Ubuntu 12.04, to export its shares automatically on reboot?
