Hi,

 

I keep getting this message in Console, in Lion.

 

nfsd: unrecognized export option: network

 

No amount of google'ing turns anything up as to what this could be. I would of course like, to be able to solve this, or at least understand why I keep getting this notice every 10 seconds in Console.

 

Any ideas?

    I've found some information about nfsd but I'm afraid it's over my head:

    http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/ man8/nfsd.8.html

    Have you figured out what this is?

     

    I've been looking for info about this for weeks now and have found nothing either. I read the link from Colin, however, it's a bit over my head as well. It goes all the time that the system is up, even when it's supposed to be sleeping in the middle of the night, the log shows, every 10secs, same thing.

    Can you paste a dump of your exports file by dumping  o/p of "cat /etc/exports" here?

    I'm getting these as well, but more like many times a second. Is there a fix? cheers!

    I solved the problem by deleting the /etc/exports file.

     

    When I looked in it, it was something leftover from my installation of the trial verson of Autodesk Smoke 2012. I played with the 30 day trial version over the summer, and I uninstalled it by using their instructions, however this seemed to be something missed by the uninstaller. Once I deleted this file and restarted, the problem was gone.

     

    Hoep it helps.

    Glad u got it! While I remember also having a trial of smoke many moons ago, I don't have an /etc/exports file onboard. So how did you figure it out...did you search on a keyword? Cheers!

    Wow, that seemed to do the trick!

     

    I am a bit curious as to how you discovered it? All I had to go by was the line in the console app, and I didn'y know how to trace it back any further.

    I found it after Trohit posted his request for the file a few replies back. It pointed me to the file, and I opened it in text edit and saw the problem. I don't remember what exactly it was now, but the file was requesting a path to the old autodesk folder that was no longer on the system.
