1. (optional) mount an extra disk on the machine that will be the NFS server.
2. enable NFS sever by running the following:
svcadm -v enable -r network/nfs/server

3. Run the following command to share via NFS
share -F nfs -o rw /flararch
Note: The above share command will not persist over reboots. To persist over reboots, add an entry to /etc/dfs/dfstab

share -F nfs -o rw /flararch

4. Run the following command to mount from the client side:
mount -F nfs server:/flararch /mount_point
Note: The above mount command will not persist over reboots. To persist over reboots, add the following line in /etc/vfstab:

server:/flararch - /mount_point nfs - yes rw,soft
