Question A mounted file system inside an NFS mount

I am mounting a file system from my server on my network. It works great and I can mount from anywhere except that there is another mount on the server to a second hard disk.

The directory stucture seams to get exported but no files. Is this normal or is there some switch I need to resolve this.

nfs setup

Make sure your NFS server is set up to allow exporting of mounted volumes. The command-line option for rpc.nfsd is --re-export, although my man page doesn't show it.

man exports, however, gives the 'nohide' option which seems to give the same thing, but for an export point instead of all export points.
