Really? crm(live)# ra info exportfs:

fsid* (string): Unique fsid within cluster or starting fsid for multiple exports
    The fsid option to pass to exportfs. This can be a unique positive
    integer, a UUID, or the special string "root" which is functionally
    identical to numeric fsid of 0.
    If multiple directories are being exported, then they are
    assigned ids sequentially starting with this fsid (fsid, fsid+1,
    fsid+2, ...). Obviously, in that case the fsid must be an
    0 (root) identifies the export as the root of an NFSv4
    pseudofilesystem -- avoid this setting unless you understand its
    special status.
    This value will override any fsid provided via the options parameter.

Did you read "UUID" also?

The code clearly does not match the description, and it is broken.
I would also expect that "validate" would report values for fsid it cannot handle.
Furthermose I see no sense in trying to increment a fsid.

Maybe you can explain.
