NFS Server

NFS exporting of /melon1,2,3 is automatic and is linked to ZFS. For example, /melon3 is only exported if there is a ZFS tank created within it.

Add a new user directory, e.g. /melon1/NEWUSER

melon# zfs create -o quota=500G -o sharenfs=on melon1/NEWUSER
melon# chown NEWUSER:500 /melon1/NEWUSER
