In the Legacy NFS Sharing UI, NFS shares can not be sorted by path when clicking on the column title.
All columns can be sorted except the Paths column.

The Windows Sharing UI is not affected by this issue.

Expected behavior

In NFS Sharing (Legacy) UI, when clicking on the column title Paths, it should sort paths by name

Step to reproduce:

  1. Go to Sharing | UNIX (NFS)
  2. Create two shares:
    • /mnt/tank1/foo
    • /mnt/tank1/bar
  3. Click on the column title Paths to sort in alphabetical order
  4. But nothing happens. The black arrow does not appear in the column title.


  • Other columns in NFS sharing UI work (Comment, All Directories, Read Only)
  • SMB sharing UI does not suffer this issue, all columns work
  • I have tested with many web browsers and I have the same wrong behavior:
    • Firefox 52.7.3 (64-bit), Linux
    • Google Chrome Version 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) (64-bit), Linux
    • Microsoft Edge, Windows 10
    • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11, Windows 10
    • Firefox 59.0.2 (64 bits), Windows 10
    • Google Chrome Version 66.0.3359.117 (Official Build) (64-bit), Windows 10

Sebastien: this works correctly in the new UI which will be the default as of the next version.

I have proposed a patch to fix this issue.
The patch is only a single boolean to toggle, so I hope it could be accepted for the next FreeNAS release
because many users still prefer the old UI.
