In this example we create the “test” NFS share on a QNAP NAS from CLI and export it to client_ip_01 and client_ip_02. Things to keep in mind: this only creates an NFS share – not a Samba share. To create a Samba share, look at the “/sbin/addshare” command.

Determine the mountpoint for your data volume:

SSH to the QNAP as admin user (QNAP does not have a root account).

Add the new NFS share to nfssetting:

Update /etc/exports

Check that the new export has been configured:

Confirm that QNAP NFS server is accessible from client:

Optional steps for initial NFS configuration:

Enable NFS services at boot time:

Re-/start NFS server:
