    And I am wondering why this has covered before editing /etc/exports & smb.conf. RHCE certification is not only for experienced people, many freshers do it as well. I need to recommend the series for newbies, please get it corrected.

    • @Neeraj,
      The answer is simple. The RHCSA objective related to this article reads as follows: “Mount and unmount CIFS and NFS network file systems”. It does NOT require a candidate to SET UP a CIFS or NFS share. That objective is covered as part of the RHCE exam.

        I was referring to:


        Before proceeding further, please make sure you have a Samba server and a NFS server available (note that NFSv2 is no longer supported in RHEL 7).

        • @Neeraj,
          I see your point – but that’s the way it is. Maybe you should contact RH directly and ask for their feedback on the ordering on contents.
          Anyway, I’ll tell you my experience with the Linux Foundation certifications. With the LFCS exam, one of the required competencies is that you know how to mount a NFS share. You are NOT required to know how to SET it up – just mount it.

          • Neeraj Rawat says:

            I understand then, even LDAP authentication from the client side needs to be done in RHCE though I don’t know the configuration of Linux DC. Hopefully, would be done today or tomorrow.

            Waiting for my 4 more training and certifications to be completed. Once I would be a certified architect then will contact them again. I didn’t get satisfactory answers in the past at one go, even when my tickets were escalated to the top most level.

    Small mistake, in set permission for gacanepa user you probably committed.
    I think should be full path to file testfile.txt not only directory.

    Thanks for that another article.
