OpenSUSE Leap 42: Install nfs-client for NFS client

This article will describe installing nfs-client for NFS client.

1 Install nfs-client

Install nfs-client package.

$ sudo zypper -n in nfs-client

2 Mount NFS with mount.nfs

Mount NFS with mount.nfs to /mnt directory.

$ NFS_DIR=/srv/nfsshare
$ sudo mount -t nfs ${NFS_SERVER}:${NFS_DIR} /mnt

3 Mount NFS on boot

Add mount entry to /etc/fstab. For avoiding mounting NFS before network initialization, you need to add _netdev option. For making x-systemd.automount to mount NFS, you need to add x-systemd.automount to option.

$ echo "${NFS_SERVER}:${NFS_DIR} /mnt nfs _netdev,x-systemd.automount 0 0" | \
sudo tee -a /etc/fstab
