Comment 6 for bug 197499

Steve Langasek's result is confirmed.

In /etc/exports on the NFS server, I used double quotes to enclose a path with a space. When I ran "exportfs -ra", I got the error, "Warning: <export point> does not support NFS export."

Then on the NFS client, I created an /etc/fstab entry where I replaced the space character " " with "\040". It works as expected (and no error is printed out).

Incidentally, finding out how to use double-quotes in /etc/exports was hard. Several forums exist where people falsely state 'spaces don't work at all with NFS'. And finding out to use \040 in /etc/fstab was hard too... I only decided to try that after somebody posted how to do that with a non-NFS mount point.
