I have four linux systems with various distros (enigma, cooker, potato,
Here's my situation...
I would like one system to serve as more or less a central server for the
other three. I would ultimately like to host all local network services
from this system, including nfs and user authentication. Having multiple
boxen on my net, centralization is of the essence since I want access to
my data wherever I happen to be as does the wife. Plus it's a great
learning project :-)
I have tried the walk-through at http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/NFS-HOWTO/
to try and get the nfs services up and running on the "server" (snag), no
go. Everything goes through, modified all required config and access
files, but the following happens when I try to launch rpc.nfsd --
nfssvc: Function not implemented
I have no idea what the hell this means. All the other ancillary daemons
are running (portmapper, mountd, rquotad and status) according to rpcinfo
-p output. Any ideas on this one? Google searches yield pretty
unspecific info, mostly others with similar problems, but no real fixes as
of yet, though I will keep looking.
Also, any idea where I should begin looking for central user
authentication services? Is this the NIS I read about somewhere? Sorry
for all the newbie probes, but I really appreciate the help!
