Description Eric Paris 2007-09-05 14:38:18 EDT
Description of problem: I created an /etc/exports file with /export/referral *(fsid=0,refer=hostname:/some_export) The man page does actually say the syntax is supposed to be /export/referral *(fsid=0,refer=/some_export@hostname) question is why are we throwing eons of nfs syntax out the window? Hasn't it always been hostname:export ? At the very least if the 'wrong' syntax is given there needs to be some error message that it isn't going to work rather than just silently failing. Please add 'normal' syntax if possible and if not, at least give me an error that there was something wrong.

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'. If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to rawhide. (If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.) Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp We will be following the process here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this doesn't happen again.
