share nfs solaris specific ip

To share an nfs share in Solaris 10 modify the /etc/dfs/dfstab file and add the following share command

share -F nfs ro= /dir/to/share

You can specify and IP/netmask to share. In this case we are sharing nfs read only in solaris 10. After adding this to the /etc/dfs/dfstab file you will need to restart the nfs service

svcadm restart nfs/server

You can verify the service is online and no mistakes were made by performing

svcs | grep "nfs/server"

Now you can see the nfs share is being shared by doing

cat /etc/dfs/sharetab

It should be listed in that file and exported.
