As originally reported in Sep 8 1994
mountd still does not grok duplicate hosts in exports.
Could someone revisit this issue again? I think it's
inappropriate for mount(2) to return EPERM for this
situation since that means the caller is not super-user,
which isn't the problem at all.
On a related note, mountd seems very slow to process
the exports list, certainly substantially slower than
our HP-UX and SunOS systems. I am wondering why mountd
reads the exports file instead of having a separate
program like "exportfs"? At least you know when exportfs
is finished reading the file and the mountd process does
not "hang" causing a timeout on any system requesting a
mount during the rescan time.
The system is:
NetBSD ics22 1.2 NetBSD 1.2 (ICS22) #0: Tue Mar 11 04:30:29 PST 1997
Mountd from either 1.2 or current fails.
