I have tried the trick several times but had no success so far.

Below is the info of my testing environment

[root at GS_BackupFarm_Cluster01 ~]# gluster volume set bkfarm nfs.export-dir /00
Set volume successful
[root at GS_BackupFarm_Cluster01 ~]# gluster volume set bkfarm nfs.export-volumes off
Set volume successful
[root at GS_BackupFarm_Cluster01 ~]# gluster volume info

Volume Name: bkfarm
Type: Distributed-Replicate
Status: Started
Number of Bricks: 4 x 2 = 8
Transport-type: tcp
Brick1: bkf1:/sfarm
Brick2: bkf2:/sfarm
Brick3: bkf3:/sfarm
Brick4: bkf4:/sfarm
Brick5: bkf5:/sfarm
Brick6: bkf6:/sfarm
Brick7: bkf7:/sfarm
Brick8: bkf8:/sfarm
Options Reconfigured:
nfs.disable: Off
nfs.export-dir: /00
nfs.export-volumes: off
diagnostics.client-log-level: ERROR
diagnostics.brick-log-level: ERROR
cluster.min-free-disk: 10%
performance.cache-size: 2048MB

----------client side ---------
[root at GSO_DB_Local1 ~]# mount -t nfs bkf3:/00 /bkfarm/
mount: bkf3:/00 failed, reason given by server: No such file or directory

What am I missing? Any thought?

These volume set options should do the trick

gluster volume set xfsvol nfs.export-dir /subdir

 gluster volume set xfsvol nfs.export-volumes off

Let me know.

AFAIK one can expose subfolders thru gluster NFS for a client if he/she has option nfs.export-volumes ON and nfs.export-dir Enable. There will be a case (for security purpose)  when people just want to expose only subfolders for clients thru NFS.  I wonder if it is possible to expose only subfolders thru gluster NFS protocol for a client?

Any insight into this is much appreciated.
