I have this MCVE under SLES 11 SP2:
10.10.50.199 has the directory
/foo there is a directory
bar/ which is used in
10.10.50.199 has an NFS export of
/foo which means that
/foo/bar is included in this export.
And now something very strange happens: When I access the NFS share
10.10.50.199:/foo on a Windows Server 2012 R2 then the
/foo/bar/ directory is empty even
/foo/bar/ has lot of entries.
When I access the NFS share
10.10.50.200:/nfs_folder directly on the Windows Server 2012 R2 then I can see its content.
The same happens when
/foo is a Samba share which includes the
10.10.50.200:/nfs_folder NFS share.
Any write operation into this embedded NFS share is denied but when I write directly into the
10.10.50.200:/nfs_folder share then it works.
Under Samba I am using the
hide files directive to hide the
bar/ directory and prevent any problems. But under NFS I cannot exclude this directory.
Any idea what is going on? Is it forbidden to embed NFS shares?
