Hopefully I don't get to lost in my explanation here. I have a raid1
array w/ ZFS running ontop of it, yes I realize this isn't the ideal way
to do things, I didn't know that at the time.

The system is stock FreeBSD-8.2-i386, with 2GB of RAM.

In /boot/loader.conf I have the following:

The array is 2x750GB Seagate 2.5" drives w/ 16MB cache/ea. I'm not
doing anything fancy except storage of various Operating System
ISO's and some other files, all being served to my lan via Samba
(to some windows clients) and via nfs to several linux/freebsd clients.

Now, on to the juicy stuff.

Windows is unable to successfully connect to the SMB shares anymore,
and I can't figure out why. No error messages are printed in
/var/log/messages on the server. The samba share block for /tank/store
is as follows:

        comment = ZFS Tank
        path = /tank
        valid users = chris
        admin users = chris
        read list = chris
        write list = chris
        read only = No
'chris' being the uid I use everywhere on my lan. Every machine
has this login.

NFS wise, I have the following set up:

[root at ziggy ~]# cat /etc/exports
/home   -alldirs      -network -mask
/usr/obj    -maproot=root -alldirs -rw
/usr/src    -maproot=root -alldirs -rw
/usr/ports  -maproot=root -alldirs -rw
/usr/ports/distfiles    -maproot=root -alldirs -rw
/usr/ports/packages -maproot=root -alldirs  -rw
[root at ziggy ~]# cat /etc/zfs/exports

/tank   -maproot=root -alldirs -rw
/tank/music     -maproot=root -alldirs -rw
/tank/store     -maproot=root -alldirs -rw
/tank/tmp       -maproot=root -alldirs -rw

[root at ziggy ~]# showmount -ae
All mount points on localhost:
Exports list on localhost:
/tank/store                        Everyone
[root at ziggy ~]#

/usr/src, /usr/obj, /usr/ports, /usr/ports/distfiles, and
/usr/ports/packages are all zfs remounts

[root at ziggy ~]# df -h

tank/src                484G    798M    483G     0%    /usr/src
[root at ziggy ~]#

Now when I try to mount anything from the tank path, I get success,
but, I am not able to create files on /tank/store, whereas I can on
/tank/tmp and /tank/music, which is odd in of itself.

Now if I try to mount any of the zfs-remounted shares from /usr, I get
permission denied errors, such as this.

>From the client: (fbsd8.2 laptop, recompiled srcs)
root at blackdragon ~]# mount -t nfs ziggy:/usr/src /usr/src/

[tcp] ziggy:/usr/src: Permission denied

[root at blackdragon ~]#

And from the server's /var/log/messages I see:
Dec 25 16:49:15 ziggy mountd[788]: mount request denied from
for /usr/src

I'll get that error message for any of the following nfsshares:
/usr/src, /usr/obj, /usr/ports, /usr/ports/packages, and

So I am unsure where I went wrong but some guidance would be
greatly appreciated.
