NFS Daemon

I'm setting up a solaris server at home.
At the moment I have to keep running:

/etc/init.d/nfs.server start

To start my NFS server process. Is there anything I can do to make this happen automatically at boot?

Many thanks in anticipation.

Stin.

which solaris version?
to run nfs server at boot time you have to have an entry in:

/etc/dfs/dfstab

and the server will start at boot....

Thank you for the prompt reply.

I'm running solaris 8 since that is what we use at work.
I've put an entry into dfstab but also in the file it says I need to start the daemon.

Do I have to manually do this each time I power on the server?

no, only for the first time. after an entry is in the file the nfs server always starts at boot time!
