The Linux nfs server seems to have this 'feature' where, any mount points
further down the tree from the exported file system are also exported.
Some consider this a desirable feature.
My problem is that I have linux files on my Unix workstation, available
via NFS. The Linux disks are available on the workstation via NFS.
Linux NFS server quite happly re-exports the NFS mounts, meaning that
you can get the situation where 2 NFS requests are being generated
to access a file !. ( ie Tek Workstation -> Linux -> Tek )...
This wasnt a problem untill I tried to use the Tape drive on the workstation
to back the Linux root disk via NFS. 'tar' quite happly followed the branches
on the tree, including all the NFS mounts, and proceeded to backup most of
my Tek workstation via Linux's NFS...
Is there a switch to stop Linux's NFS server from exporting NFS imported
