cDOT NFS - .snaphot directly automounting

Hello Guys,

 

I have seen a strange behaviour with Netapp Cluster Mode, when we do a NFS export to a unix server they can moun it correclty no issues.

After sometime when a new snapshots is created the Unix is showing up all the snapshots, as they are directly mounted on the system:

 

ubuntu@vx910:~$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev 12G 4.0K 12G 1% /dev
tmpfs 2.4G 1.2M 2.4G 1% /run

none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock

10.221.223.88:/segot_knfsv01_dsfs_1000/knfs01_dsfs_1000_q1000n/.snapshot/hourly.2016-02-04_1405 5.0G 4.5G 535M 90% /var/lib/graphite/whisper/.snapshot/hourly.2016-02-04_1405
10.221.223.88:/segot_knfsv01_dsfs_1000/knfs01_dsfs_1000_q1000n/.snapshot/hourly.2016-02-04_2005 5.0G 4.5G 535M 90% /var/lib/graphite/whisper/.snapshot/hourly.2016-02-04_2005
10.221.223.88:/segot_knfsv01_dsfs_1000/knfs01_dsfs_1000_q1000n/.snapshot/hourly.2016-02-05_0205 5.0G 4.5G 535M 90% /var/lib/graphite/whisper/.snapshot/hourly.2016-02-05_0205
10.221.223.88:/segot_knfsv01_dsfs_1000/knfs01_dsfs_1000_q1000n/.snapshot/hourly.2016-02-05_0805 5.0G 4.5G 535M 90% /var/lib/graphite/whisper/.snapshot/hourly.2016-02-05_0805
ubuntu@vx910:~$

 

In this case we dont want them to see this, as it is mounted directly. Instead they should be able to browse to the snapshot manually by getting into the .snapshot directory. (same behaviour as of 7-Mode)

when i tried to remount the shares and then i see only one nfs path mounted, but later i see this snapshots directory mounted again.

Do you have autofs conigured on the unix host?
