27.2 Importing File Systems with YaST

Users authorized to do so can mount NFS directories from an NFS server into their own file trees. This can be achieved using the YaST module NFS Client. Click on Add and enter the hostname of the NFS server, the directory to import, and the mount point at which to mount this directory locally. The changes will take effect after Finish is clicked in the first dialog.

In the NFS Settings tab, click Open Port in Firewall to open the firewall to allow access to the service from remote computers. The firewall status is displayed next to the check box. When using NFSv4, make sure that the checkbox Enable NFSv4 is enabled, and that the NFSv4 Domain Name contains the same value as used by the NFSv4 server. The default domain is localdomain.

Click Finish to saves your changes. See NFS Client Configuration with YaST.

The configuration is written to /etc/fstab and the specified file systems are mounted. When you start the YaST configuration client at a later time, it also reads the existing configuration from this file.
