nfsd won't start unless exports has content
Status in nfs-utils package in Ubuntu:
Since the following change:

- if [ -f /etc/exports ]
+ for file in /etc/exports.d/*.exports ; do
+ if [ -f "$file" ]; then
+ export_files="$export_files $file"
+ if [ -f /etc/exports ] && grep -q '^[[:space:]]*[^#]*/' $export_files
It is no longer possible to start nfsd without content in /etc/exports
(or /etc/exports.d/*), making it impossible to create temporary
exports (ie - using exportfs) if the host does not have permanent
exports. This also breaks other alternative management tools that
eschew /etc/exports, like ZFS.
