I have learned from this Linux NFS-HOWTO that in order to setup a NFS server, the daemon portmap must be run first.

But why I cannot find any portmap process using ps aux | grep.

My system is Ubuntu 12.10 and I set up my NFS server under the instruction from SettingUpNFSHowTo.

Are you running NFS version 4, because that no longer requires portmap. –  user164770 Jun 5 '13 at 21:08
