one nfs mount point for many logical volumes

hi

i am wondering if it is possible to use one nfs mount point for several logical volumes.

i have a top level directory /imaging with data1 - data50 below it. each dataX directory is a logical volume configured through LVM. if i mount them separately on the client (i.e. 50 lines in fstab with server: /imaging/data1 /imaging/data1), everything works fine.

however, i would like to make only one mount point and have the fstab file for the client read only like:
server:/imaging /imaging

is this possible? when i tried it the client side had only empty directories for each of the dataX directories. am i missing an option or something?

thank you in advance for any help!

export the /imaging directory rather than the individual dataX directories. Then on the client your command line will do what you expect.

note: when changing /etc/exports remember to run exportfs -a to have the nfs server re-read the changes.
