Description of problem:
Given the /etc/exports:
(or in the other order), running exportfs -rv gives:
[root@ws12 root]# exportfs -rv
exporting ws14.commsecure.com.au:/var/mnt to kernel
ws14.commsecure.com.au:/var/mnt: Invalid argument
reexporting ws14.commsecure.com.au:/var to kernel
In this case /var/mnt is NFS mounted from a different server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put the above in a /etc/exports
2. Run exportfs or restart the nfs service.
3. See the logs.
Expected Results: The /var/mnt filesystem should be exported nohide, and thus a
client mounting /var will be able to see the re-exported /var/mount
This is RH7.3 with all the errata.
What does your /proc/mounts look like at this point?
On which machine - the client or the server?
The server --- that's the node which is trying to re-export an NFS mount point.
I can't seem to reproduce this here, now :(
It still doesn't work properly, but the exportfs command doesn't give errors any
more. I can't use the machine I was originally testing on to confirm, becuase
it's been upgraded to 8.0.
If you can't reproduce it either, you might just have to close it as not
