On Ubuntu NFS client machine we need install NFS client software:

sudo apt-get install nfs-common

Create new folder (VOD for example):

mkdir /home/user/VOD

Then mount NFS share:

sudo mount 10.120.105.10:/mnt/VOL1/Dataset1 /home/user/VOD/

Now we are connected with the NFS share. If we restart client machine share will be unmounted.

 

For permanent mount NFS share at client end on startup we need to add the NFS share in fstab file on Linux client.

nano /etc/fstab

and add next line into fstab file:

10.120.105.10:/mnt/VOL1/Dataset1 /home/user/VOD/ nfs defaults    0 0

Now NFS share will mounted on startup after reboot.
