This test case is to run pynfs test suite on a NFSv4 root. The test requires both an NFS server and client. However, the client and server can exist on the same system.

How to test

  1. First, configure the NFS server by creating an NFS mount export
    cp /etc/exports /etc/exports.orig
    echo '/nfs *(rw,insecure,no_root_squash)' >/etc/exports
    mkdir /nfs
    service nfs restart
  2. Next, on the client system, download pynfs testsuite from the client.
    git clone git://
  3. Now, 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.
