OpenSUSE 10 and NFSv4

Small HowTo mount a NFSv4 share (without Kerberos) on OpenSUSE10:

  1. yast -i nfs-utils to install nfs-utils package

  2. Edit /etc/sysconfig/nfs and set NFS4_SUPPORT="yes"

  3. Put your DNS-Domain in /etc/idmapd.conf. MUST be the same as on the server!

  4. chkconfig idmap off just to be sure

  5. chkconfig idmap on to enable idmapd in runlevels 3 and 5

  6. /etc/init.d/idmapd restart or reboot

  7. mount -t **_nfs4_** HOST:PATH /your/local/path

  8. Be happy!
