Description:

 

 

If you receive a "E000193: Error the server in slot(5) has an export entry that is (2435 /nas/server/slot_5/export) characters in length. This exceeds 2048 characters in length, which exceeds the allowed limits. Check emc247995 for additional information." and you already used a hosts name instead of FQDN or host IP addresses, how can you fix this issue?

 

Resolution:

 

You can reduce export entry length by using local netgroup file. Here is an example:

 

1. create a netgroup.txt file

 

#more netgruop.txt
allgroup grp1 grp2
grp1 (scooby,,) (snowball,,) (snowball,,)
grp2 (godzilla,,) (nsg8,,)

 

 

Please check Configuring EMC Celerra Naming Services (P/N 300-004-172) document chapter Create or edit a netgroup file” for more detail information.

 

 

 

2. Put netgroup.txt to the Data Mover:

server_file server_x -put netgroup.txt netgroup

 

 

3. Update export entry with netgroup name:

 

server_export server_2 -P nfs -o root=allgroup,access=allgroup /test
