To start testing Linux pNFS server?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


This is my first message to this list. I have been using Fedora 16 and NFSv4 for sometime, and would like to give NFSv4.1 with the pNFS extension a try.  

I understand that according to NFSv4.1 is really developer-only at this point, but it should "mostly work" - that's good enough for me. 

The wiki, states that "As of early 2011, it is mostly unmaintained, and we no longer recommend its use". It then points to But, as far as spNFS is concerned, the two wiki pages form a circular reference. The other options for file layout are no go either.

Then, there is this:
which seems to indicate that with a pNFS enabled kernel, a determined user can start testing NFSv4.1 + pNFS. Steve Dickson even has a repository here:

Can anyone kind enough to give a short summary as to how to proceed for testing NFSv4.1 + pNFS using Fedora 16 nodes as servers?

As of now, all my Fedora 16 nodes have the following from a regular kickstart install:
[root@fedora0 ~]# uname -a
Linux fedora0 3.3.2-6.fc16.x86_64 #1 SMP Sat Apr 21 12:43:20 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@fedora0 ~]# rpm -q nfs-utils
[root@fedora0 ~]# cat /proc/fs/nfsd/versions
+2 +3 +4 -4.1
