Hi, I tried Solution 13.2 in LAB 13.2.

I tried "mount /home/share/nfs", but it returns error "mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting".

In Exercise 13.1, I tried to change "chown nfsnobody /home/export", but it failed because there is no user named nfsnobody. So, I created nfsnobody. Does this cause problem?

    Thank you for your input. 

    In Ubuntu 16.04 the default user used for NFS is "nobody" rather than "nfsnobody".

    Please use the userid "nobody" in exercise 13.1 in the chown command. (see below) 


    chown nfsnobody /home/export 

    For Ubuntu 16.04:

    chown nobody /home/export

    The rest of the lab will function as documented.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention it will be corrected in the next edition.
