If you are running an Enterprise Linux 6-based distribution (including Oracle Linux 6, CentOS 6, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6), you can install a packaged version of fedfs-utils-0.9.
Adding the EPEL 6 repository
The fedfs-utils packages are not part of the original Enterprise Linux 6 package set. But they are available in the popular add-on repository for Enterprise Linux known as EPEL. Before you can install fedfs-utils on your Enterprise Linux 6 system, EPEL 6 repository information has to be configured so yum can find fedfs-utils 0.9 packages and retrieve subsequent updates.
Download the epel-release package for EL6. An information page is located here.
As root, cd to the download directory and install the downloaded RPM:
# rpm -ivh epel-release-*.noarch.rpm
You should be able to see that the repository has been configured:
# yum repolist

fedfs-utils is split into several packages. These include:
On any Enterprise Linux 6 host that participates in a FedFS domain, you can install just the fedfs-utils components you need. For example, on NFS clients:
# yum install fedfs-utils-client
Or, on NFS servers:
# yum install fedfs-utils-lib fedfs-utils-nsdbparams fedfs-utils-server
There are also packages for development and debugging:
