My mistake -- I mistook the errors in your original post to be the entire
What do your physical mounts look like again? In my experience, if any
one exports line is wrong, the whole file fails. Try commenting out all
but one of the lines and seeing if the problem goes away. With clever
commenting, you can then narrow it down.
In the lines above, "root" will be taken as a machine name. While that's
unlikely to be the cause of your error, I don't expect it's what you want.
The exports man page specifically states that maproot can specify either
a username or a uid.
