VNX and NFSv4

Just a note to self: (Actually when discussing NFS with your customer)

If you are using VNX make sure you use OE 7.1 and greater. Why??

NFS4 is enabled by default but just not turned on!!

$ server_nfs <movername> -v4 -service -start where: <movername> = name of the Data Mover

There are other considerations to implement NFSv4

  • NFSv4 Domain
  • Access Policy: Mixed is recommended
  • Delegation Mode off
  • You can even restrict access to NFSv4 only, as normally a file system is exported to all versions of the NFS protocol
