Hello noeley,

I am not seeing anyway to do this via CLI.

Sorry for my delay.

The right way to do this is to capture a current list of IPs in your server_export output, unexport the export, and then re-export it with the new list of IP addresses.

Do note that this is disruptive to end users of the export; do this in a downtime window or a low IO window.

To get the list of current exports:

server_export server_X

To unexport:

server_export server_X -u -p

To re-export with a new IP list:

server_export server_2 -o

So let's say you have fs1 with an access= list which has on it and you want to add to it:

server_export server_2 -u -p /fs1
server_export server_2 -o access= /fs1
