    how to have write-access to NFS


    I'm already installed, run nfs on the server and mount at client side. The problem when the client tried to create a file to the shared partition, it says "Permission denied".

    The /etc/exports of my server is :

    /backup 10.4.0.6(rw,sync)

    I login to 10.4.0.6 and mount :

    mount 10.4.0.1:/backup /mnt

    I change directory to /mnt and tried to create a file by using touch but it says "Permission denied".

    I beliebe there's no problem since all commands are done by root both in server and in client.

    Anyone has an input?

    Ensure that the mounts have the correct permissions on them. Just because you mount them RW doesn't mean the system mounting them will have RW privileges.
