Answer

The showmount option allows NFS clients can use the showmount -e command to see a list of exports available on an NFS server

Additional Information

  • Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 introduced support for showmount queries from clients
  • To enable/disble the showmount option:
  • vserver nfs -vserver <vserver> -showmount {enabled\disabled}
  • After showmount is enabled, clients will be able to query data LIFs for export paths
  • However, the clientmatch (access from clients, netgroups, and so on) information will not be available
  • Instead, each path will reflect 'everyone' as having access, even if clients are specified in export policy rule sets
  • NetApp TR-4067
  • Qtrees failing to display in "showmount -e"
