You should only export the filesystem once, giving the -alldirs
option. You can't really export individual directories, only
/usr/export -maproot=root -alldirs testme.bluefeathertech.com
If /usr/export isn't its own filesystem, do this instead:
/usr -maproot=root -alldirs testme.bluefeathertech.com
