NFS sharing mountpoint?


I've got a fileserver with two 160GB drives. They are mounted at /share/1 and /share/2
If I try to export /share/ over NFS, 1 and 2 appear to be empty directories. How can I export both discs under the same mountpoint?

when you export the directory with nfs it wont include any mounted filesystems inside the directory. this is done to avoid the posibility of an endless loop. I had the same problem on my system. you have to export /share/1/ and /share/2/ seperatly and mount them on the client.

That's the work around I employed, but I was hoping there was a simpler way. Makes sense to engineer it that way, though.
