How to restart NFS server on Ubuntu


Once you set up your NFS exports by adding lines to /etc/exports you need to restart your NFS server; do this with the following:


sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart


You should see output along the lines of:

 * Stopping NFS kernel daemon                 [ OK ]
* Unexporting directories for NFS kernel daemon…           [ OK ]
* Exporting directories for NFS kernel daemon…
exportfs: /etc/exports [1]: Neither ‘subtree_check’ or ‘no_subtree_check’ specified for export “”.
Assuming default behaviour (‘no_subtree_check’).
NOTE: this default has changed since nfs-utils version 1.0.x


Assuming no error messages pop up here you should now try to connect to your NFS share.
