nfs-ganesha: showmount fails to display the clients having the mounts
Last modified: 2016-01-19 01:15:27 EST
Description of problem:
Usually with showmount command one list the client(s) that are having the mount of export(s) from a particular server
But with nfs-ganesha it is not working,
# showmount 10.70.46.59
Hosts on 10.70.46.59:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
as mentioned above
should display the list of clients having the mount.
Right now ganesha does not DUMP call (to fetch the mount list).
Ganesha does not maintain this information and there is no intention of maintaining the information. It was never correct anyway. If the server restarts, the information is lost, yet the clients are still mounted. Similarly, clients can unmount without ever notifying the server.
