Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 45496
exportfs -u does not work in the following scenario
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:48 EDT
Description of Problem:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. exportfs <host1>:<dir>
2. exportfs <host2>:<dir>
3. exportfs <ip_address_of_host1>:<dir>
4. exportfs -u <host1>:<dir>
After step 3, all entries for host1 in etab and xtab change to show
ip_Address instead of fully qualified hostname.
Step 4 fails. Entry is removed from etab, but not xtab.
After "exportfs -u", entry should have gone from etab and xtab file.
If exportfs replaces hostnames with ip_Address and ip_Addresses with
hostnames, then exportfs -u, should also be able to work with either.
Tried exportfs with ip_address, fully quaified domain name and short
name , but none worked.
If only IP addresses are specified for client name, then everything works
I can not reproduce this problem on a stock 7.1 system.
Well, I just tried it and I get the same problem.
1. exportfs system1:/tmp
2. exportfs a.b.c.d:/tmp2
where a.b.c.d is ip address of system1.
Now try exportfs -u system1:/tmp - It fails for me.
