Starting NFS server Solaris 10

Whenever I start nfs/server using "svcadm -v enable" it appears to start up. But when I look for daemons such as nfsd I don't see any. So I checked the manifest logs for nfs/server and it's telling me the NFS service gets enabled and then immediately disabled with a stop 102.

All the dependencies for nfs-server seem to be online
but the nfs/server does not stay enabled.

Any help or suggestions would be great.

have you edited the /etc/dfs/dfstab? there has to be ONE entry to start the nfs server!

You are correct Duke, a dfstab entry or a sharetab
entry will also envoke the nfsd daemon.
I guess the nfs/server was running but the /var/svc/log
for nfs-server was playing tricks on me. Smilie
