I am setting up a new box (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) to play with and I mounted (via mount.cifs) a windows network share at /mnt/common. Also added the lines to fstab, mounts just fine at boot time.
Now when I am trying to share this folder over nfs I am getting:
exportfs: /mnt/common does not support NFS export
I've played around with the mount permissions (because normally it is mounted read-only) - 777 does not help either.
Exporting /home directory works just fine.
Is that because the files are on a Windoze 2003 server? Is there any workaround around this?
