21.3.3. Starting and Stopping the Server

On the server that is exporting NFS file systems, the nfs service must be running.
View the status of the NFS daemon with the following command:
/sbin/service nfs status
Start the NFS daemon with the following command:
/sbin/service nfs start
Stop the NFS daemon with the following command:
/sbin/service nfs stop
To start the nfs service at boot time, use the command:
/sbin/chkconfig --level 345 nfs on
You can also use chkconfig, ntsysv or the Services Configuration Tool to configure which services start at boot time. Refer to Chapter 19, Controlling Access to Services for details.
