Description Trond Eivind Glomsrød 1999-11-17 06:12:21 EST
From "man exports":

              This option enables static  mapping.  It  specifies
              the  name  of  the  file that describes the uid/gid
              mapping, e.g.


              The file's format looks like this

              # Mapping for client foobar:
              #    remote     local
              uid  0-99       -       # squash these
              uid  100-500    1000    # map 100-500 to 1000-1500
              gid  0-49       -       # squash these
              gid  50-100     700     # map 50-100 to 700-750

This is /etc/exports:


/etc/map.nfs is just copied from the man page.

This results in the following log entry:
Nov 17 12:10:58 janus exportfs[4413]: Unknown keyword
"map_static=/etc/map.nfs" in export file
nov 17 12:10:58 janus exportfs: exportfs: Unknown keyword
"map_static=/etc/map.nfs" in export file

knfsd doesnt support this feature. Someone has used an old unfsd
manual page and not removed the gid mapping and ugidd references.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2000-02-17 10:41:59 EST
Of course it's a bug if someone used an old man page with options which aren't
Comment 3 Michael J. Rensing 2000-04-11 12:54:59 EDT
I'm running RedHat 6.1 with the standard rpms from RedHat. The man page has a
full explanation of the map_static feature. I would hope that the plan is to
add this feature rather than delete it from the documentation.
