[Linux-cluster] Configuring NFS Export Options

Thank you for your prompt response. I believe it is doing what it's supposed to, but the documentation is confusing.
When I see "NFS Client" I am expecting it to configure a highly available NFS client, not the client access for my NFS server. Most of my experience is with MC/ServiceGuard, which may also be contributing to my confusion.
I did a test and I can see an entry for the directory in the output of the exportfs command. However, when I try to mount the file system on the remote node, I am getting a "program not registered error".

Which options are you looking for?  Some options are (usually)

Your service structure should resemble:

  <service name="foo">
    <fs name="filesystem1" mountpoint="/mnt/tmp" ...>
      <nfsexports name="exports">
        <nfsclient name="client1" target="client1.mydomain.com"

I *thought* the nfs client configuration dialog box allowed you to put
in name/target/options... is that not happening?
