It is a network application protocol used by devices (DHCP clients) to obtain configuration information for operation in an Internet Protocol network. This protocol reduces system administration workload, allowing devices to be added to the network with little or no manual intervention.
The DHCP server manages a pool of IP addresses and information about client configuration parameters such as the default gateway, the domain name, the DNS servers, other servers such as time servers, and so forth.
A network file system is any computer file system that supports sharing of files, printers and other resources as persistent storage over a computer network

Daemon name : nfsd
TESTING # First of all we need to install Extended Internet Daemon for support of SAMBA using command. rpm -ivh /dump/Server/xinetd* --aid –force # Then installing samba packages using command. rpm -ivh /dump/Server/smb* --aid –force # Now install FTP packages using command . rmp -ivh /dump/server/vsftpd* --aid –force # And similarly install DHCP packages for assign IP address automatically to all the systems by using command . rmp -ivh /dump/server/dhcpd* --aid --force
Continue…. # now configuring the DHCP for NETWORK cat /usr/share/doc/dhcp-3.0.5/dhcpd.conf.sample > /etc/dhcpd.conf #After configure the DHCP then Restart DHCP,NFS,VSFTP,SAMBA service by using commands. service dhcpd restart service vsftpd restart service nfs restart service smb restart # Then Permanently ON the all services by using commands. chkconfig smb on chkconfig dhcpd on chkconfig nfs on chkconfig vsftpd on
Continue…. # Then adding two users named POP and ROCK useradd pop useradd rock # adding files in the directory of USERS for sharing echo "this is a file of users POP " > /home/pop/sales echo "this is a file of users ROCK " > /home/rock/myfile echo "plz assign passwords to both users mannually accroding to your requirement” Also assign the passwd to the users by using command . passwd pop passwd rock echo " Thanx all things are done and working fine."
