    2. Install Control Center.
      yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=zenoss-mirror install -y \

    2. Set the backup file permissions to read-only.
      chmod 0440 /etc/default/serviced-1.3.3-orig
  5. Add a drop-in file for the NFS service.
    This step is a workaround for an an unresolved issue.
    1. Create a directory for the drop-in file.
      mkdir -p /etc/systemd/system/nfs-server.service.d
    2. Create the drop-in file.
      cat <<EOF > /etc/systemd/system/nfs-server.service.d/nfs-server.conf
      Requires= proc-fs-nfsd.mount rpcbind.service
      Requires= nfs-mountd.service
    3. Reload the systemd manager configuration.
      systemctl daemon-reload
