LFS211 - Question 13.2

Hello,
What does it mean for showmount to operate in a particular version of NFS?

I have an NFSv4 server and running showmount on it from the client returns the defined exports. By that token, should NFSv4 not also be a valid answer?

Thanks,
/Henrik

    Hi @HenrikAreskoug ,

    I have an NFSv4 server and running showmount on it from the client returns the defined exports.
    By that token, should NFSv4 not also be a valid answer?

    The showmount command gives information about the NFS server, what it's sharing and to who (hostname/IP). But I don't see it shows the NFS version of the server. The --version or -v parameters gives the program's version only. But I guess you are referring to NFSv1, 2, 3, 4, when you ask "What does it mean for showmount to operate in a particular version of NFS?".

    If you provide more information about what you are doing/taking a look to, it could be easier to assist.

    Regards,
    Luis.
