The showmount man page says, under BUGS,
The completeness and accurary of the information that showmount displays
varies according to the NFS server's implementation.
Presuming that it means accuracy, that's an accurate statement. I just had
occassion to reboot an NFS server and was checking the mounts and clients
afterwards and noticed that showmount on the server was shwoing a lot of
mounts that simply weren't there. How can I get showmount back into sync ?
If I simply remove /var/lib/nfs/rmtab how can I make it be recreated
