Using NFS Advanced Edit to create an export of a subdirectory within a Share fails with the message “share matching query does not exist”, because the check is performed incorrectly.
Example: the following entry
will fail because the Share name is “my_home” but the code incorrectly looks for a Share named “Documents”.
Manual edits of etc/exports will eventually get overwritten, so that’s not workable. A workaround to get past this bug is to create a dummy share named “Documents”, which lets this line pass the check. NFS will then export “my_home/Documents”, not the dummy share. The “/etc/exports” file then includes those exports though they do not appear on the NFS page. I haven’t tested to confirm that the Advanced Edits will be preserved after further additions or deletions of NFS exports through the UI.
This bug relates to issue #1078. Bug was found in version 3.9.1 and confirmed to still be present in version 4.5.6-0.
