20.4 SunOS 5.X
8 nfs daemons, nfsd, and the mount daemon, mountd, are started when you initiate run level 3 by the /etc/rc3.d/S15nfs.server script. These daemons are physically located in /usr/lib/nfs. If the /etc/dfs/dfstab file is empty when entering run level 3 the mountd and nfsd daemons are not started. To start these daemons later you can place an entry in the dfstab file and execute "init 1", and then return to run level 3, or you can execute the nfs.server script mentioned above.
NFS clients require the statd and lockd daemons, also located in /usr/lib/nfs.
