This suggests that it should be possible:


It might be based on outdated assumptions, though; some googling on "reexport
smb share over nfs" indicates others have also had problems getting it to work,
with no working solutions that I've been able to find.

Why, though, would NFS refuse to reexport a mounted filesystem?  Does it need
some low-level access to the filesystem that a network mount doesn't provide?
