    NFSv4 file server problems

    Hi, Part of my job is supporting Linux users at a university, and we have recently migrated one of our file servers from Solaris to FreeBSD. We've had some problems and hence I'm posting here. HW: CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2667 v4 @ 3.20GHz (3200.07-MHz K8-class CPU) real memory =...

    ZFS Modifying/re-building FreeBSD kernel for ESXi NFS datastore

    Hi, so I followed the directions on another site to edit `/usr/src/sys/fs/nfsserver/nfs_nfsdport.c` and then perform `make kernelbuild` and `make kernelinstall` - rebooted (of course). Don't appear to have any difference in transfer speeds with NFS datastore in ESXi (sync set to standard)...

    NFS client hangs all the time when I enter large directory

    Hi All, I have been facing a strange problem on AWS, where I created a large FreeBSD NFS server, with the below configuration. My throughput to writing a file is 600-800 Mbps and reading files are much higher. I have no issues with throughput, but the problem is with while accessing a folder...

    ZFS 11.1-RELEASE-p1: ZFS userquota, NFS quotas and quota(1)

    I'm attempting to set up a machine as an NFS server with the data being stored on a ZFS filesystem. I've been doing this for nearly ten years on our Solaris 10 servers, which this new server is eventually going to replace, and we need to use the userquota facility to manage user's storage...

    Solved Changing effective owner on mounted NFS share

    I have a share on FreeBSD with files owned by a UID that does not match the same user on the server remotely accessing these files. Without changing permissions on the files themselves, how can I make it so the remote system sees these files as being owned by a different user? To break it down...

    nfs server within jail

    Is this possible? I have seen older threads stating this is not possible. But I think it might have to do with older versions... do I need to explicitly disable nfs and rpc on the host?

    I am setting up NFSv3 server and I would like to have my servers /shared directory exported globally. I want to have it available across several subnets and I wonder if I could streamline it better: /etc/export /shared -alldirs

    NFS file locking questions

    I'm wanting to use lockd on my nfs server, but first I'm trying to make sure it will do exactly what I'm thinking it will do. I haven't been able to find a good concise writeup on it and the manpage isn't too helpful, so I thought I'd ask the forum. The setup: *NFS server and two NFS clients...

    Server (NFS,SMB,CUPS,DLNA...)

    Hello everybody, I have just registered here because I am planning a project where I think FreeBSD could be the ideal OS. I am currently running a dual boot system with Arch Linux and Windows 10. Both systems have FDE, Linux with LUKS (LVM) and Windows with Bitlocker, so data can not be easily...

    Dear FreeBSD Community! I'm planning to setup a NAS (for my family, a mix of Windows, Linux and Mac OS Clients) in a jail on my FreeBSD machine (which should replace my actual Linux-based homeserver step by step). So I prepared a jail with it's own IP, set up samba and joined our Active...

    This has been an enormous pain for me. It's a seemingly simple issue and I hate to even make a thread about it, but nothing I'm trying is working and at this point I'm starting to wonder if my problem is even in exports or if it's something else. Basically I just want a couple directories on my...

    NFS3 sharing multiple filesystems

    I have a ZFS file-system (project) that contains numerous ZFS file-systems (project001, project002...project120). How can I share this with NFS3 as just a single share? On Linux there is a crossmnt option that does this. I have separate file-systems as I need to be able to snapshot each...

    NFS Mount - On Host or in Jail?

    I'm looking to mount an NFS share on a host where the mount will be used inside a jail. I'm not sure what would be more secure, and what what method would be preferred for accessing NFS storage on another server on the same network. I am happy to explore either way and I can think of reasons...
