This test case is to run pynfs test suite 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. Download pynfs testsuite from the client.
    git clone git://
  2. Run the pynfs testsuite.
    cd pynfs
    ./ build_ext --inplace
    ./ --maketree <server IP>:/nfs all

Expected Results

  1. Step #1 completes without error.
  2. The testsuite finishes without error; no nfs*.error files in /tmp.
