Since you didn't explain the specifics related to your confusion, all I can say is that the man pages are probably more correct.
Assuming you already have a running NFSv3 NFS server, all you need to do is: - Add a V4: line to your /etc/exports files. This does not "export any file systems" (that is done by other lines in /etc/exports exactly the same as NFSv3). However, it does tell the NFSv4 server where the "root" is for NFSv4 clients. (ie. Where in the server's file system tree a "nfs-server:/" done by an NFSv4 client ends up.) - Add nfsv4_server_enable="YES" to your /etc/rc.conf. Note that, since NFSv4 does allow a mount to cross server mount points (unlike NFSv3), a client will normally only do a single mount at or near the "root" specified by the "V4:" line (see "man exports"). If you explain what inconsistencies are in the docs, maybe someone could fix them. rick Thanks, -- Shawn Webb Cofounder / Security Engineer HardenedBSD GPG Key ID: 0xFF2E67A277F8E1FA GPG Key Fingerprint: D206 BB45 15E0 9C49 0CF9 3633 C85B 0AF8 AB23 0FB2 https://git-01.md.hardenedbsd.org/HardenedBSD/pubkeys/src/branch/master/Shawn_Webb/03A4CBEBB82EA5A67D9F3853FF2E67A277F8E1FA.pub.asc _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-stable To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-stable-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
