Manage NFS Client Versions

Prior to StorNext NAS 1.3.0, only NFSv3 client connections to StorNext NAS Systems were actively supported. With StorNext NAS 1.3.0, NFS client version connections are handled as follows:

  • If you are NOT using NAS failover for NAS NFS clusters, both NFSv3 and NFSv4 client connections to StorNext NAS Systems are supported.
  • If you are using NAS failover for NAS NFS clusters, only NFSv4 client connections are enabled and cannot be disabled. This requirement is necessary to support lock recovery after failover. See Configure NAS Failover for NAS NFS Clusters.

You can manually disable NFSv4 support on a single node if you are NOT using NAS failover for NAS NFS clusters. In addition, you can manually re-enable NFSv4 client connection support on a single node, as needed.
