I must first indicate that i totally mistated the question. I really
meant to ask how I add hosts to a Suns NFS system and then restart the
However, here is the Summary to my question.
As with almost every other service in Unix, there are start and stop
scripts in the /etc/init.d which have links to them from various rc*.d
/etc/init.d/nfs.server stop
/etc/init.d/nfs.server start
/etc/init.d/nfs.client stop
/etc/init.d/nfs.client start
Depending on the shell, you usually need to run the scrips with a sh.

Thanks to all for the help.
