I have created a shared folder /data01/share on one Suse Gnu/Linux and also made entry for host(client) machine in /etc/exports /data01/share,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check) . But i am getting this after exportfs -a

exportfs: No options for /data01/share,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check) : suggest (sync) to avoid warning
exportfs: /etc/exports [2]: Neither 'subtree_check' or 'no_subtree_check' specified for export ":/data01/share,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)".
Assuming default behaviour ('no_subtree_check').
NOTE: this default has changed since nfs-utils version 1.0.x

exportfs: Failed to stat /data01/share,sync,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check): No such file or directory

cat /etc/os-release

  • Can you paste cat /etc/os-release and systemctl status nfs-server.service?

  • Not sure if I get what you have tried so far, can you also paste cat /etc/exports? Can the client reach the nfs server and vice versa? Is your firewall active?

  • Alright, then please add the output of ls -la /data01/share to the question. You can remove sensitive data, if necessary.

  • Does it work if you remove no_subtree_check? I read that in a similar question.

Just add the option subtree_check to /etc/exports like this:

# cat /etc/exports

Restart NFS service

# systemctl restart nfs-server
# exportfs -av
