Re: Isilon - Can you have 2 NFS export for the same directory, But different permissions?

User access via NFS is controlled via UNIX-style permissions, read, write and modify.  You cannot create an NFS export that controls those permissions - they are only at the filesystem/directory/file level.

You can, however, create multiple NFS exports where one export is read-only and one export is read-write.  For example, you can export /ifs/data1 as NFS read-write to a series of clients, then export /ifs/data1 as NFS read-only to a different series of clients.  But, again, that does not control user access.

Let me know if that helps!
