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 RHEL, Debian, Ubuntu, SUSE, and FreeBSD distributions.

This cookbook depends on Sean O'Meara's line cookbook


  • nfs['packages']

    • Case switch in attributes to choose NFS client packages dependent on platform.
  • 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['service_provider']

    • ['portmap'] - provider for portmap service, chosen by platform
    • ['lock'] - provider for lock service, chosen by platform
    • ['server'] - provider for server service, chosen by platform
  • nfs['config']

    • client_templates - templates to iterate through on client systems, chosen by platform
    • server_template - Per-platform case switch in common nfs.erb template. This string should be set to where the main NFS server configuration file should be placed.
  • nfs['threads'] - Number of nfsd threads to run. Default 8 on Linux, 24 on FreeBSD. Set to 0, to disable.

  • 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['v2'], nfs['v3'], nfs['v4']

    • Set to yes or no to turn on/off NFS protocol level v2, or v3.
    • Defaults to nil, deferring to the default behavior provided by running kernel.
  • nfs['mountd_flags'] - BSD launch options for mountd.
    nfs['server_flags'] - BSD launch options for nfsd.


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" ],
    "port" => {
      "statd" => 32765,
      "statd_out" => 32766,
      "mountd" => 32767,
      "lockd" => 32768
run_list [ "nfs::server" ]

nfs_export LWRP Usage

Applications or other cookbooks can use the nfs_export LWRP to add exports:

nfs_export "/exports" do
  network ''
  writeable false 
  sync true
  options ['no_root_squash']

The default parameters for the nfs_export LWRP are as follows

  • directory

    • directory you wish to export
    • defaults to resource name
  • network

    • a CIDR, IP address, or wildcard (*)
    • requires an option
    • can be a string for a single address or an array of networks
  • writeable

    • ro/rw export option
    • defaults to false
  • sync

    • synchronous/asynchronous export option
    • defaults to true
  • anonuser

    • user mapping for anonymous users
    • the user's UID will be retrieved from /etc/passwd for the anonuid=x option
    • defaults to nil (no mapping)
  • anongroup

    • group mapping for anonymous users
    • the group's GID will be retrieved from /etc/group for the anongid=x option
    • defaults to nil (no mapping)
  • options

    • additional export options as an array, excluding the parameterized sync/async, ro/rw options, and anoymous mappings
    • defaults to root_squash

nfs::undo recipe

Does your freshly kickstarted/preseeded system come with NFS, when you didn't ask for NFS? This recipe inspired by the annoyances cookbook, will run once to remove NFS from the system. Use a knife command to remove NFS components from your system like so.

knife run_list add  nfs::undo
