System: NetBSD bart.stasoft.ch 1.6.2 NetBSD 1.6.2 (BART) #0: Tue Feb 24 18:30:15 CET 2004 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/BART i386
With NetBSD -current and stable, checking of /etc/exports in /etc/security
(check_nfs) is not done correctly. Several things are wrongly assumed:
- only one directory can be specified per entry
- logical lines are physical lines
- the host set starts with a minus sign (-)
But the following is true:
- several directories can be may be specified per entry
- lines can be continued using \ because src/usr.sbin/mountd/mountd.c,
line 1043, read /etc/exports using fparseln(3).
- the host set can be specified as -network=... -mask=...
An /etc/exports entry as follows:
/a/directory /another/dir \
-ro -maproot=nobody:nobody -network=184.108.40.206 -mask=255.255.255.0
is syntactically correct and doen't export the directories globally, but
results in the following text being output during /etc/security execution:
Checking for globally exported file systems.
File system -ro globally exported, read-write.
