+----------------------+          |          +----------------------+
| [    NFS Server    ] |10.0.0.30 | 10.0.0.31| [    NFS Client    ] |
|    dlp.srv.world     +----------+----------+     www.srv.world    |
|                      |                     |                      |
+----------------------+                     +----------------------+

[1] Configure NFS Client.
[root@www ~]#
dnf -y install nfs-utils
[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/idmapd.conf
# line 5: uncomment and change to your domain name

Domain =
srv.world
[root@www ~]#
systemctl start rpcbind

[root@www ~]#
systemctl enable rpcbind

[root@www ~]#
mount -t nfs dlp.srv.world:/home /home

[root@www ~]#
df -hT

Filesystem              Type      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
devtmpfs                devtmpfs  2.0G     0  2.0G   0% /dev
tmpfs                   tmpfs     2.0G     0  2.0G   0% /dev/shm
tmpfs                   tmpfs     2.0G  856K  2.0G   1% /run

tmpfs                   tmpfs     2.0G  4.0K  2.0G   1% /tmp
tmpfs                   tmpfs     396M     0  396M   0% /run/user/0
dlp.srv.world:/home     nfs4       15G  1.4G   14G  10% /home
# home directory from NFS server is mounted
[2] Configure NFS mounting on fstab to mount it when the system starts.
[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/fstab
/dev/mapper/fedora-root /                       xfs     defaults        0 0
UUID=7ff45846-749b-4997-a68f-6111e8a0f1d1 /boot ext4    defaults        1 2
/dev/mapper/fedora-swap swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
# add NFS mount's settings to the end
dlp.srv.world:/home /home                       nfs     defaults        0 0
[3] Configure auto-mounting. For example, set NFS directory on /mntdir.
[root@www ~]#
dnf -y install autofs
[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/auto.master
# add to the end

/-    /etc/auto.mount

[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/auto.mount
# create new : [mount point] [option] [location]

/mntdir -fstype=nfs,rw  dlp.srv.world:/home

[root@www ~]#
mkdir /mntdir

[root@www ~]#
systemctl start autofs

[root@www ~]#
systemctl enable autofs

# move to the mount point to make sure it normally mounted

[root@www ~]#
cd /mntdir

[root@www mntdir]#
