Description Don Walters 2004-08-18 15:49:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
I put the following line in /etc/exports...


When I restart NFS, I get the following error...

exportfs: /etc/exports:1: unknown 
keyword "map_static=/etc/exports.map"

Apparently the map_static keyword isn't recognized.  Removing it 
allows NFS to start normally.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add the map_static keywork into /etc/exports
2.Restart NFS (service nfs restart)

Actual Results:  Error message

Expected Results:  NFS start normally and allow user mapping

be fixed, the function should probably be removed from the

Hey Don,

I've looked in the exportfs(8), exports(5) and nfsd(8) man
pages and could not find where map_static was talked about.
What documentation are you refereeing to?
