No more nfs-secure-server?

Hi,

I am trying for the sake fo preparing for RHCE exam to set up secure NFS mounting  between two VMs running CentOS7 and one thing (among others) i noticed was the absence of nfs-secure-server. Even yum provides says it can't find the package that contains the server.

I am meeting a slew of issues, for now I am blaming homebrew Kerberos keytabs but maybe something else is at fault for the "access denied" message.

So, anyone knows what happened to nfs-secure-server? Would that be a factor in "access denied" when trying to mount Kerberized NFS share?

On RHEL 7.1, the nfs-secure-server service became a static service and as a result can no longer be enabled. Which version of RHEL do you use? I wonder if it's been removed altogether.

on 7.1 and 7.2 it is started by nfs-server - from the client side its started by nfs-client.target 

Assuming all the krb5.keytab's are present

I am using CentOS 7.6.1810 (Core). Not RHEL, although I have access to it I haven't tried it yet.

The current RHCE exam is based on RH 7.0 Version. This is stated in the Exam Objectives as per this link

ex300-red-hat-certified-engineer-rhce-exam

This exam and the exam objectives provided here are based on the Red
 Hat®Enterprise Linux® 7.0 version of the exam.

This is one of the differences between RH7.0 and later versions

 

Hope that helps you in prepping for your exam.
