Is map_static no longer supported in NFS?


I am trying to set up a simple NFS network, using Opensuse 11.1 on the server. According to several references I’ve found (such as this one), it is possible to map user ids from the client to uids on the server using a simple text file, plus the keyword map_static=/filename. I have /etc/exports line


but when I restart nfsserver I get the message

Starting kernel based NFS server: idmapdexportfs: /etc/exports:2: unknown keyword "map_static=/etc/"

Any ideas where I’m going wrong?..

Thanks for any responses.

This may be a problem with the fact that they switched from nfs-server to nfs-kernel-server, perhaps it no longer supports static mapping of uid/gid.
