Question Mount nfs filesystem

I try to share a directory from a wortstation to a server.
the share command was no problem.
Solaris 8

on mars
share -F nfs -o rw /dir/dir2

on the server
mount mars:/dir/dir2 /mount_point

RPC: Program not registered <--- What is the meaning of this ?

Thanks for you help !

When the system boots, the NFS server is not enabled unless there are NFS exports listed in /etc/dfs/dfstab.

To start the nfs server after adding an entry to dfstab, issue the following command:

# /etc/init.d/nfs.server start

Note that it isn't currently possible to start the nfs server using the "nfs.server" script unless there are entries in /etc/dfs/dfstab.

If you want to do automatic sharing, you need to export at least one other filesystem if you're running Solaris 2.6 or earlier.

your problem is nfsd and mountd weren't running. It turns out that if
there are no shared entries in /etc/dfs/dfstab, then those daemons aren't
started at boot time. The solution is o put the share command in
/etc/dfs/dfstab, and then execute

# /etc/init.d/nfs.server start (as stated above)

Also, you can issue the commands manually:

/usr/lib/nfs/nfsd -a 16
/usr/lib/nfs/mountd

This must all be done as root, naturally.
Hope this helps
