    How will the Kerberos authentication work in a typical SMB set up where the AD is running on a vmdk that is on the NFS in question when it was all down for a power outage or a move. i.e. do we have a chicken vs egg problem that means these small environments can’t safely use this feature due to all the eggs being in that one vCentre basket.
    Also what other directory services are supported? (eg, eDirectory and/or plain LDAP)

    Smart Card integration ? could be Awesome if it’s supported for login too.

    When you have multiple NFS4.1 server IPs for a mount in vSphere 0, are they used in a round robin or active / passive manner?

    […] ESXi NFS 0.1: This will technically enable active/active multipathing for NFS arrays (Parallel NFS)  from the ESXi server. This will require an NFS 0.x aware array. Possibly with new multipathing policies for NFS. NFS 0.x  requires a server to store metadata. Not sure which storage vendors support NFS 0.1 at this point but definitely a big step forward as this will greatly enhance the performance of NFS filesystems. More on PNFS http://www.pnfs.com/ *pNFS is currently not supported on vSphere 0 (together with other features like SDRS, SIOC, SRM, VVOLs and NAS VAAI). In order to achieve more throughput session trunking can be used – see Chris Wahl’s article .) […]

    In the NFS Versions and Guidelines, the first method used: 0.Mount a new volume using NFS 0.1 and Storage vMotion workloads to it. WILL WORK PERFECTLY.

    Nice article Chris. Looking forward to see NFS 0.1 on Synology Box (it has already been requested but more voice we have, better it is: http://forum.synology.com/enu/viewtopic.php?t=87718 )

    How did you set your permissions to get around this error? I could not get Kerberos functionality working either.

    Hi Chris!
    I am curious… with nfs4.1 how many vmkernel did you created to use multipath correctly?

    Is FT supported in NFS 0.1? The article says yes, but I think it does not.

    Chris, as a esxi 0.0 user contemplating the upgrade to 0.0.1a with all available patches to fix things like the nasty CBT bug… I’m curious if I still need to segment out my NFS 0.0 filesystems and network adapters. I have an EMC VNX5200 with three file systems, each on their own subnet, so each has their own vmk nic and the EMC has its interface presented with 0 IPs on their own subnets. The reason for this is to balance machines across these datastores and trick vmware into sort of load balancing or allowing multiple connections to the same storage device. I’m pretty sure you were the one who did the writeup on this.

    In NFS v4.1 would I need to keep each datastore on its own subnet, or is NFSv4.1 now that its connection aware allow vmware kernel to push my 00gbps jumbo frame ethernet to its limits without complicated multi-interface setup?
