NFSv4 Large server concept.

Hi Everyone,

I have a NFSv3 server which currently shares out 36 NFS shares. These share on the server are individual filesystems mounted from a SAN.
I'm re-designing this to use NFSv4, however I'm hitting problems and I'm not sure if its my method or I have simply a config file incorrect.

Current NFSv3 Server
/data/fs1 - SAN mounted filesystems is NFS'd to client
/data/fs36 (goes all the way upto 36).

New Idea (NFSv4)
Still mount
/data/fs1 to 36 on the server
mount bind each fs1 to fs36 into /nfsexports
Then export /nfsexports to client, I keep getting permissions denied, so Is what I'm doing right or have a screwed up setting up the NFS?

Just for information this is sharing over 6TB of data to two client machines.

You still need to export any submount of /nfsexports if you want clients to see it.
