I just stepped on a land mine where someone changed something in the /etc/exportfs file a long time ago, never reloaded it and when I added a new export and did a exportfs -r to reload the file it blew up. Short of doing a exportfs and comparing it to the /etc/exports file is there any automated way to do this in DFM or something or do I just have to manually compare the two or write a script?

exportfs -a will load the file without exporting something that isn't in the file.
exportfs -w <path> - will let you export the current exportfs list to a file - if you wanted to do that before making the file change.
This will work-around the problem you experienced, but to do a comparison - you'd have to do a check via an external system (for example: linux diff).
