This method is possible that don't work with NFSv4.

Enabling NFS Server

  • Stop the container:
    # vzctl stop CTID
  • Turn on nfsd feature in the container:
    # vzctl set CTID --feature nfsd:on --save
  • Start the container:
    # vzctl start CTID

NOTE: CTID is means Container ID.

You can check if nfs-kernel-server is running:

# service nfs-kernel-server status

To show the export directories:

# showmount -e
