Why does mountd keep telling me it “can change attributes\ and that I have a “bad exports list\ on my FreeBSD NFS server?

The most frequent problem is not understanding the correct format of /etc/exports. Please review exports(5) and the NFS entry in the Handbook, especially the section on configuring NFS.

The most frequent problem is not understanding this passage from the exports(5) manual page correctly: Each line in the file (other than comment lines that begin with a #) specifies the mount point(s) and export flags within one local server filesystem for one or more hosts. A host may be specified only once for each local filesystem on the server and there may be only one default entry for each server filesystem that applies to all other hosts. This is made more clear by an example of a common mistake.
