Hi krishna,

After configuring the /etc/exports . restart the server so that the changes made will be effected to the server.
and check the command showmount -e server ip.
it will show the export servers list

best of luck

I again failed this task, could you please make it in pending status, so that I can give it another try. I thought the issue is with nfs server only, but it seems like I need to check all app servers too.

Hi yashpalsingh3737,

You just have to click on the answers provided in the review page in kodekloud engineering. Then you will get another attempt to perform the same task. Here is the more information : Updates coming! Review, Assist and Retry features

You need to verify the syntax in the /etc/exports file on server ststor01.

  1. Verify the name of the mountpoint that is being shared. And if required do the correction there.
  2. Kindly remove the space between the ip addresses, if any.
    Correct syntax will be -
    /mountpointname ip1,ip2,ip3(option1,option2,option3…)

save this file.
And then execute exportfs -r and exportfs -a and then check with command showmount -e. Verify that nfs service is running or not. If not, then start it.
Verify that nfs service is enable at boot or not.
And if required then only install the nfs server RPM packages if not installed.
