Problem with Mounting using NFS

Hi ,

I've mounted an NFS Mount from Server A to Server B . Now i'm i'm tryng to export the NFS mount from server B and mount it on Sevrer C.

It says "mount: ServerC:/mnt failed, reason given by server: Permission denied"

and when i checked the logs in server B , It says , " mountd[11998]: Cannot export /mnt, possibly unsupported filesystem or fsid= required"

Is it not possible to share the NFS mount again .

Please help.

Thanks in advance

I don't understand why you want to export the mounted filesystem on server B. If you want to mount a filesystem on several computers you mount it from the same server, in your case server A.
On server A you export the filesystem to all computers that needs to mount it. On server C you mount the exported filesystem on server A.

I have never tried to export a mounted NFS file system, but I don't think a mounted NFS filesystem is supposed to be exported.
