NFS server on Solaris 10 branded zone

I am trying to get a NFS share on a Solaris 10 branded zone. I have read that this is not possible...but I was hoping someone here could tell me different.

share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 /dir

This would really surprise me that you cannot do this.

Thanks

I had a similar issue in trying to configure a NFS server on a non-global zone (in this case a legacy Solaris 8) and had to use lofs to allow the global zone to publish the NFS handle.

Here's the thread................

You can also pass through the 11 kernel by referencing:
Code:
share -o ro /etc/zones/[zonename]/root/[filesystem]

. On the global zone only.

On the non-global zone:
Code:
mount -F nfs [globalzone]:/etc/zones/[zonename]/root/[filesystem] /dir

The reason you cannot do what you want is because nfs mounts can only occur in the global zone. share/unshare only works there.

lofs mounts work well also. I prefer them.
