Unable to browse some drives on remote computer using NFS.


I have a strange problem that just started today. I have a computer on my internal network I mount using NFS. That computer has 2 hard drives. The second hard drive is mounted to a folder on it's Desktop. When I browse that comptuer over the network I can access any folder but I can't browse the mounted hard drive's folder on the Desktop. If I disconnect from that "server" on the network and then remount using sshfs I can browse that second hard drive. The only problem is sshfs isn't as stable as nfs or I would just use that method.

I'm running Slackware 14 on the "file server" and Mint on the "client".

NFS doesn't cross filesystem boundaries, you'll need to use multiple exports to get what you're looking for.

I think that you may need to look at adding the 'nohide' option in /etc/exports. From 'man exports'
Quote:
nohide This option is based on the option of the same name provided in IRIX NFS. Normally, if a server exports two filesystems one of which is mounted on the other, then the client will have to mount both filesystems explicitly to get access to them. If it just mounts the parent, it will see an empty directory at the place where the other filesystem is mounted. That filesystem is "hidden".

Setting the nohide option on a filesystem causes it not to be hidden, and an appropriately authorised client will be able to move from the parent to that filesystem without noticing the change.
