Solaris - Got NFS Trouble? Try Stopping And Starting The Service (Solaris 8/9)


Solaris provides read and write access to volumes that are exported versions of local file systems through the Network File System (NFS). If you ever encounter NFS problems running NFS, you can check to see if its two daemons--nfsd and mounted--are running. You can check either daemon.


To check the nfsd daemon, use the command: ps -eaf | grep nfsd To check the mounted daemon, use the command: ps -ear | mounted


The commands will return process entries. If there are none simply run the stop and start commands, as so:


  • # /ect/init.d/nfs.server stop
  • # /ect/init.d/nfs.server start
