Manage NetAPP NFS exports using exportfs CLI

Requirements

Login to NetAPP with SSH / Console (We used PUTTY)

How to

-Read NetAPP NFS exports file:

rdfile /etc/exports

– Copy output to Notepad or something similar with CTRL+C

Output example for NFS share called “myexport” located at /vol/myexport with rw permissions to all 10.0.0.X, 10.0.1.X and root access to 10.0.0.X

/myexport -actual=/vol/myexport,sec=sys,rw=10.0.0.0/24:10.0.1.0/24,root=10.0.0.0/24

– Edit NetAPP NFS exports – for example limit 10.0.0.X to Read Only:

/myexport -actual=/vol/myexport,sec=sys,ro=10.0.0.0/24,rw=10.0.1.0/24,root=10.0.0.0/24

– Copy all exports to Memory with CTRL+C

– Write updated exports file:
wrfile /etc/exports

– Paste Memory to Console with CTRL+V

– Press enter and then exit with CTRL+C

– Re Export your NFS shares:

exportfs -a

All Done!
