vPower NFS version

Post by ferrus » Apr 07, 2016 10:31 am

Looking into upgrading our VMware environment.
Previously ESX vmkernel ports were stuck at NFS v3, but with vSphere 6 - I believe NFS v4.1 is supported.

What version would vPower use? (as the NFS server, not a client)

vSphere 6 supports both NFS 3 and 4.1. We fully support vSphere 6 as well so there won't be any issues in regards to the NFS datastore created by vPower.

Thanks - but I was just wondering if the vSphere <-> vPower communication would use v3 or v4.1 of the protocol.
If it's v4.1, presumably multipathing/session trunking could be used?
