NFSD

NFS server support

Choose Y here if you want to allow other computers to access
files residing on this system using Sun's Network File System
protocol.  To compile the NFS server support as a module,
choose M here: the module will be called nfsd.

You may choose to use a user-space NFS server instead, in which
case you can choose N here.

To export local file systems using NFS, you also need to install
user space programs which can be found in the Linux nfs-utils
package, available from http://linux-nfs.org/.  More detail about
the Linux NFS server implementation is available via the
exports(5) man page.

Below you can choose which versions of the NFS protocol are
available to clients mounting the NFS server on this system.
Support for NFS version 2 (RFC 1094) is always available when
CONFIG_NFSD is selected.

If unsure, say N.

NFSD_DEPRECATED

Include support for deprecated syscall interface to NFSD

The syscall interface to nfsd was obsoleted in 2.6.0 by a new
filesystem based interface.  The old interface is due for removal
in 2.6.40.  If you wish to remove the interface before then
say N.

In unsure, say Y.

NFSD_V3

NFS server support for NFS version 3

This option enables support in your system's NFS server for
version 3 of the NFS protocol (RFC 1813).

If unsure, say Y.

NFSD_V3_ACL

NFS server support for the NFSv3 ACL protocol extension

Solaris NFS servers support an auxiliary NFSv3 ACL protocol that
never became an official part of the NFS version 3 protocol.
This protocol extension allows applications on NFS clients to
manipulate POSIX Access Control Lists on files residing on NFS
servers.  NFS servers enforce POSIX ACLs on local files whether
this protocol is available or not.

This option enables support in your system's NFS server for the
NFSv3 ACL protocol extension allowing NFS clients to manipulate
POSIX ACLs on files exported by your system's NFS server.  NFS
clients which support the Solaris NFSv3 ACL protocol can then
access and modify ACLs on your NFS server.

To store ACLs on your NFS server, you also need to enable ACL-
related CONFIG options for your local file systems of choice.

If unsure, say N.

NFSD_V4

NFS server support for NFS version 4 (EXPERIMENTAL)

This option enables support in your system's NFS server for
version 4 of the NFS protocol (RFC 3530).

To export files using NFSv4, you need to install additional user
space programs which can be found in the Linux nfs-utils package,
available from http://linux-nfs.org/.

If unsure, say N.
