Problem with previously nfs exported dir - root has no acces

I’m running SUSE 10.1, I have a directory that I believe was previously exported over nfs.

However, root now is not able to read any files in that directory, or create any new files. Root has wrx permissions on the directory. In the parent directory root can create files without any problems.

I tried re-exporting the directory as an nfs mount, however no client could connect to it. lsattr gives permission denied.

I haven’t tried deleting the files yet.

Looking at google, I see others have had similar issues - but no useful resolutions.

Any thoughts?
