I use it extensively to export/share filesystems. It works fine. One thing
I've noticed though: if the host in a netgroup is a SunOS 4.1.3 machine
(without the upgrade _U1), I have to fully qualify the hostname or it doesn't
For example, let's say I have a netgroup file like:
workstations (bill,,) (bob,,) (jane,,)
If Jane's machine doesn't have the 4.1.3 upgrade, I have to have it like this:
workstations (bill,,) (bob,,) (jane.domainname.com,,)
If I don't, then Jane can't mount the share.
I suspect that's a bug with the 4.13 resolver, not with netgroups.
