Problem when access a mountpoint inside a NFS Share, even when using 'nohide' option

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • When a directory inside a NFS Share is a mount point for other filesystem it is not visible when mounted in NFS Client
  • 'nohide' option in NFS server /etc/exports file does not allow NFS client to access other filesystems mounted on exported directory
  • On NFS server, I have a filesystem mounted at '/export'. A second filesystem is mounted at '/export/fs2'. I would like for the NFS client to see all the files from '/export' on down, including the ones in '/export/fs2', even though these are two separate filesystems. Unfortunately the NFS client can only see the files under '/export', and not the ones on the second filesystem mounted at '/export/fs2'.
