netapp exports and hate

 i have a netapp on premises.  
it has a couple vfilers. i wanted to create an additional vfiler. sadly, i couldn't.  hate.  i hate.
i created a volume and i needed to make it have special non-nfsv4 settings cause that's just how the world goes.  

but! for whatever reason the netapp won't let me edit /etc/exports via a mount on a management host. it just won't.  

so, here's what you do, and you'll see what this is a pain.  

ssh root@freakonetapp  

rdfile /etc/exports  

(and out spits a lot of stuff)  

/vol/crap     -sec=sys,rw,root=,nosuid  
/vol/crap2     -sec=sys,rw,root=,nosuid  

i need to change /vol/crap2 and add yet another management host.  

so, copy all the lines that spit out on the screen. make your spiffy changes on an editor somewhere and issue:  

wrfile /etc/export  

(copy your spiffy changes you had in an editor elsewhere)  

/vol/crap     -sec=sys,rw,root=,nosuid  
#/vol/crap2     -sec=sys,rw,root=,nosuid  
/unix-crap     -actual=/vol/crap2,sec=sys,rw,root=,nosuid  

And reexport nfs:  

exportfs -a
