Description Joseph Kotran 1999-03-23 20:47:17 UTC
The nfs server does not allow any client except the local
host to mount a nfs share when configured as follows:

/etc/exports:

/export/hostname1	*.domain.org
/mnt/cdrom		*.domain.org

/etc/nsswitch.conf:

hosts:	dns nis [NOTFOUND=return] files

It should allow mounts from clients that are in the
.domain.org DNS domain.  It does not allow any mounts.  If I
remove the restriction on DNS domain all clients may mount
the NFS shares.

Dave, can you verify this? I doubt it... Make sure you use knfsd.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-05 13:44:59 UTC
I cannot reproduce this problem.
