IT 3110: Systems Automation
This assignment will begin your use of NFS on your network.
- Create a new system for an NFS server.
- The NFS server should be fixed (DHCP) IP
- On the NFS server, create a top level directory to use as a network storage area. (i.e. /storage)
- Create 3 different directories in this network storage area for 3 different exports.
Create 3 new user accounts on the NFS server (use UID/GID numbers that will be open on other systems).
Export one directory to your linux clients with read-only permissions, and asynchronous acknowledgements.
Export one directory to your linux clients with read-write and no root access permissions.
Export one directory to one of your linux clients with read-write and root access permissions.
From the server, create a directory for each of the 3 new users, within each exported directory. (9 total, right?) Give proper ownership.
On all your linux clients, create mount points and mount all exported filesystems possible. Put correct entries in /etc/fstab.
Create the 3 new user accounts on all linux clients. Use the same UID/GID as on the server.
Test to be sure the system is working correctly.
Create a report with the following elements:
- A UNIX text file with the following format:
The file must be named
nfs_ip: nfs ip address linux_ip_1: linux ip linux_ip_2: linux ip linux_ip_3: linux ip linux_ip_4: linux ip dhcp_dynamic_range: start of dynamic ip range, end of dynamic ip range nfs_users: user1, user2, user3 nfs_exports: /path/one, /path/two, /path/three # server paths nfs_remotes: /path/one, /path/two, /path/three # client paths
For example, my file could look like this:
nfs_ip: 126.96.36.199 linux_ip_1: 188.8.131.52 linux_ip_2: 184.108.40.206 linux_ip_3: 220.127.116.11 linux_ip_4: 18.104.22.168 dhcp_dynamic_range: 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 nfs_users: wilma, betty, barney nfs_exports: /space/one, /space/two, /space/three nfs_remotes: /remote/one, /remote/two, /remote/three
Submit your info file to the
NFS Iassignment in the submission system.
A test will be run on the submission occasionally. A results file will be returned to the submission system.
