This article shows which OS versions support NFSv4. NFSv4 is enabled by default, but the target/staging hosts require additional configuration changes before it can be used.
Redhat/SLES: "NFSv4 Only - Enabling Recover Lost Locks" section under Linux/Redhat/CentOs.
AIX: IBM AIX article.
|OS version||NSFv4 support|
|RHEL 6.3 or later||Supported|
|SLES 11.4 or later||Supported|
|AIX 7.1, 7.2||Supported|
If these target host configurations are not set, the engine will choose NFSv3. The provided reason (e.g., "OS not supported") that is shown for choosing NFSv3 over NFSv4 can be observed under the Status tab of the selected VDB in the Delphix Engine GUI. Additional information is provided in this tab for datasets and current values.
