Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

co-nfs Cookbook

Installs and configures NFS client, or server components.
Based on original Chef community cookbooks .


Should work on any Red Hat-family or Debian-family Linux distribution.

Basic Usage

Define shares on the node as follow for NFSserver:

      "/data/nfs/primary *(rw,async,no_root_squash)",
      "/data/iso *(rw,async,no_root_squash)"


  • nfs['packages']

    • Makes a best effort to choose NFS client packages dependent on platform
    • NFS server package needs to be hardcoded for Debian/Ubuntu in the server recipe, or overridden in a role.
  • nfs['service']

    • portmap - the portmap or rpcbind service depending on platform
    • lock - the statd or nfslock service depending on platform
    • server - the server component, nfs or nfs-kernel-server depending on platform
  • nfs['config']

    • client_templates - templates to iterate through on client systems, chosen by platform
    • server_template - server specific template, chosen by platform
  • nfs['port']

    • ['statd'] = Listen port for statd, default 32765
    • ['statd_out'] = Outgoing port for statd, default 32766
    • ['mountd'] = Listen port for mountd, default 32767
    • ['lockd'] = Listen port for lockd, default 32768
  • nfs['exports']

    • This may be replaced in the future by an LWRP to load export definitions from a data bag. For now, its a simple array of strings to populate in an export file. Note: The "nfs::exports" recipe is separate from the "nfs::server" recipe.
  • nfs['config']['nfs_network']

    • If the value is a broadcast IP (like, it checks that an NIC is configured inside that network before mounting any NFS mount point
    • If value is false, it does not check an y IP, it will mount your NFS share
    • default is false



To install the NFS components for a client system, simply add co-nfs::client to the run_list.

<tt>run_list => [ "co_nfs::client" ]</tt>

To define a share, you need to apply the following attributes :

    "nfs": {
        "shares": {
            "/local/mount/point": {
                "server":       "nfs_server_ip_or_hostname",
                "remote_folder":    "export_name",
                "nfs_options':      "nfs_mount_options"

default nfs_options if not specified :

You can define an attribute :

If it contains a network address, before creating the mount point, it will first check if an ip address inside that IP scope is available or not.
If not available, it will skip the mount point configuration.


Then in an <tt>nfs_server.rb</tt> role that is applied to NFS servers:

    name "nfs_server"
    description "Role applied to the system that should be an NFS server."
      "nfs" => {
        "packages" => [ "portmap", "nfs-common", "nfs-kernel-server" ],
        "ports" => {
          "statd" => 32765,
          "statd_out" => 32766,
          "mountd" => 32767,
          "lockd" => 32768
        "exports" => [
    run_list => [ "nfs::server", "nfs::exports" ]
