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

How to test

  1. First step, configure the 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, create test trees on the server
    git clone git://
    cd cthon04
    ./runcthon --mkdirs /nfs
  3. Now, on the client, download the connectathon testsuite
     git clone git://
  4. Finally, setup the connectathon testsuite from the client.
     cd cthon04
     mkdir /mnt
     chmod 777 /mnt
  5. Run the testsuite from the client by root.
     ./runcthon --server <server IP> --serverdir /nfs --onlyv4 | tee TESTOUT.log
  6. 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/nfs*.error if any to upload it to the wiki. Please include a link to the uploaded file in your test day results.
     mkdir log
     scp root@<server hostname>:/var/log/messages messages.server
     cp TESTOUT.log messages.server /var/log/messages /tmp/nfs*.error log/
     tar czvf /tmp/nfs_connectathon-results-<fedora user name>.tgz log/

Expected Results

  1. Step #1 completes without error.
  2. Step #2 completes without error.
  3. Step #3 completes without error.
  4. Step #4 completes without error.
  5. The testsuite finishes without error; no nfs*.error files in /tmp.
  6. Step #6 completes without error.
