I have an AIX 5.3 server that has a directory called /interface that I need to export to be a Windows share.
Users are telling me that they've been able to do this before in the past but after a server failure this morning they can't anymore.
I've looked in /etc/exports and find no reference in there to /interface.
showmount -e doesn't show anything (as expected).
I have been reading man pages and it seems that mknfsexp is what I want.
So I tried (the place that is supposed to be mounted is /interface/prd and it needs to be exported as ifprod):
mknfsexp -d /interface/prd -e ifprod -S sys,dh,krb5,krb5i,krb5p -v 4 -B
What I get back is:
exportfs: /interface/prd: There are too many levels of symbolic links to translate a path name
I've done a find /interface -type l - there don't appear to be any symlinks under interface.
What am I missing here ?
