This test case is to run LTP filesystem tests on a NFSv4 root

How to test

You can run both NFS server and client on the same system or use different systems. First, configure the NFS server.

  1. Export a NFS mount.
    cp /etc/exports /etc/exports.orig
    echo '/nfs *(rw,insecure,no_root_squash)' >/etc/exports
    mkdir /nfs
    service nfs restart

From a client,

  1. Mount the NFS directory to /tmp on the client, since tests will manipulate files in that directory.
    mount -t nfs4 <server IP>:/nfs /tmp
  2. Download LTP testsuite from the client.
    wget -c ''
  3. Install dependencies to compile LTP.
    yum -y install procmail flex bison kernel-devel
  4. From the client system, run LTP filesystems tests.
    tar zxvf ltp-full-20090731.tgz
    cd ltp-full-20090731
    make install
    ./runltp -p -d /tmp -l /tmp/ltp.log -o /tmp/ -f fs
  5. Save the output from the tests to TESTOUT.log, copy /var/log/messages from both the server and client, and then tar and compress them together with /tmp/ltp.log and / to upload it to the wiki. Please include a link to the uploaded file in your test day results.
    mkdir log
    cp TESTOUT.log /var/log/messages /tmp/ltp*.log log/
    tar czvf /tmp/nfs_generic-results.tgz log/
  6. Cleanup.
    umount /tmp

Expected Results

  1. Step #1 completes without error.
  2. Step #2 completes without error.
  3. Step #3 completes without error.
  4. The testsuite finishes without error.
  5. Step #5 completes without error.
