Here is a script that launches nfsd and runs a guest:

Using the script, I met some problems making the
initramfs.gz. It confused me a lot... I don't have busybox under
/usr/bin or /usr/sbin. Where to get it?

It may be easier to use a full guest disk image instead of the disk
image generation in my go.sh script.  The initramfs is very specific to
the development machine I was using at the time.  The main thing to look
at the in the go.sh script is how the NFS services are launched on the

Busybox is a package that is available on most Linux distributions.

I realized the rhel-7.x doesn't has busybox anymore. And yes, I used some other image to continue.

Before you spend more time on this, NFS over AF_VSOCK is only suitable
for developers right now.  It is not ready for production and I am not
supporting it for end users.  So if you want to hack on NFS, please go
ahead, but otherwise it's probably not what you want.

Yes, so far we didn't plan for production. And thank you very much for your kind response.



(host)$./go.sh nfs_tcp

It results in guest kernel_panic when gdb launches the guest:

Looking forward to the kind reply.
BTW, for the following questions that I sent two days ago, I have some
ideas in mind and it could be ignored now.


I have updated both host and guest kernel with vsock-nfsd repo and
installed nfs-utils in both host and guest successfully.

There're two different manuals in
https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-nfs/msg64563.html(Quickstart 3~7)
and nfs-utils (README step 3 DAEMON STARTUP ORDER).
Which one should be the best usage?

For the first quickstart manual step 7-Mount the export from the guest,
two questions as follows.
1. why hypervisor's CID is 2? I didn't notice when it is specified?
2. Though I did step 3~7 successfully, I can't see the synchronistical
changing on host folder /export/ and guest /mnt? So how to test the
communcation between host and guest on the folder?

Thanks again!
