RHEL6.10: Mount option exec is ignored since upgrade to nfs-utils 1.2.3-78

Solution Verified - Updated -


Since updating to nfs-utils-1.2.3-78.el6, the combination "users, exec" in fstab is ignored and mount is always noexec, even when done manually by root

# cat /etc/fstab | grep -i nfs 
nfs-server:/export           /mnt                   nfs     defaults,ro,users,exec,auto       0 0

# mount /mnt

# cat /proc/mounts | grep -i nfs
 nfs-server:/export on /mnt type nfs (ro,users,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
