Example for NFS server in Kubernetes
# Note - an NFS server isn't really a Kubernetes

# it might be run in some other system.

# to pods inside the cluster.

Turns out you need to configure quotad and other services to use static ports. You can modify the docker image via RUN add echo "....." statements (plus the "non-kernel" setup flags), and then make the appropriate port entries in your service's yaml definition, and it works perfectly!

Could you please specify what you have done exactly? I run into the same problem and I am not able to solve it.
