The Services > NFS configuration screen displays settings to customize the TrueNAS NFS service.
You can access it from System Settings > Services screen. Locate NFS and click edit to open the screen, or use the Config Service option on the Unix (NFS) Share widget options menu found on the main Sharing screen.
Select Start Automatically to activate NFS service when TrueNAS boots.
|Bind IP Addresses||Select IP addresses to listen to for NFS requests. Leave empty for NFS to listen to all available addresses. You must configure static IPs on the interface to appear on the dropdown list.|
|Number of threads||Required. Enter an optimal number of threads used by the kernel NFS server.|
|Enabled Protocols||Select NFSv3, NFSv4, or both. If NFSv4 is selected, NFSv3 ownership model for NFSv4 clears, allowing you to select or leave it clear.|
|NFSv3 ownership model for NFSv4||Becomes selectable after selecting NFSv4. Select when NFSv4 ACL support is needed without requiring the client and the server to sync users and groups.|
|Require Kerberos for NFSv4||Select to force NFS shares to fail if the Kerberos ticket is unavailable.|
|Serve UDP NFS clients||Select if NFS clients need to use the User Datagram Protocol (UDP).|
|Allow non-root mount||Select only if required by the NFS client to allow serving non-root mount requests.|
|Support >16 groups||Select when a user is a member of more than 16 groups. This assumes group membership is configured correctly on the NFS server.|
Unless a specific setting is required, we recommend using the default NFS settings.
