A second mount on a existing WebDav mount


I do have the following small nasty problem which I can not solve my myself.

On my server I did mount a external WebDav directory.
(mount -t davfs http://xxxx /mnt/dat -o uid=yyyy,gid=private,file_mode=0664,dir_mode=0775,rw)
On the server I am able to see the content of this WebDav drive in /mnt/dat
On the server in /etc/export the directory /mnt is listed as NSFv4 export.

On the Client-PC I am mounting the directory /mnt to use it there.
It works and I can see the content of /mnt - BUT the directory /mnt/dat is empty!

I hope somebody does have a good hint for me please.

Well, so far as I know, and I'm open to correction, NFSv4will not export a directory which is not local to the server, or possibly another NFSv4 mounted share.

I did perform a second test...

If you mount on the same system via bind the
/mnt folter to a second one
/export
you will find the same result ... /export/dat is empty

Only if you do a spezific bind from
/mnt/dat to
/export/dat
you will find that the content of dat does exit on both side.

Unfortunally this bind option is not possible between two PCs.

Somehow I have to mount /mnt/dat to the client PC as it does not have the option to mount the webdav drive directly.

Think about file caching, something like that is what you are looking for, tho I know nothin about it.
