    Yep. I know what causes this.
    Are you running the latest nfs-utils? You want at least
    showmount --version
    tells you the version.

    What is happening is that the filehandle returned by mountd is
    different from the file handle returned by nfsd for the same file (the
    mounted directory in this case).
    This, quite reasonably, confused solaris.

    Presumably you are exporting a sub directory of a filesystem and not
    it's root? You get this "bad export" because the solaris client is
    asking for ".." of the mountpoint, and getting an unexported

    So, if you are using <, upgrade.
    If you are using >=, tell me and I will look more closely.
