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.

Installs and configures NFS client, or server components


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


  • 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["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.


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

name "base"
description "Role applied to all systems"
run_list => [ "nfs" ]

Then in an nfs_server.rb 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" ]
