@@ -39,21 +39,10 @@ interoperability problems with future clients. Known issues:
from a linux client are possible, but we aren't really
conformant with the spec (for example, we don't use kerberos
on the backchannel correctly).
- - Incomplete backchannel support: incomplete backchannel gss
- support and no support for BACKCHANNEL_CTL mean that
- callbacks (hence delegations and layouts) may not be
- available and clients confused by the incomplete
- implementation may fail.
- We do not support SSV, which provides security for shared
client-server state (thus preventing unauthorized tampering
with locks and opens, for example). It is mandatory for
servers to support this, though no clients use it yet.
- - Mandatory operations which we do not support, such as
- DESTROY_CLIENTID, are not currently used by clients, but will be
- (and the spec recommends their uses in common cases), and
- clients should not be expected to know how to recover from the
- case where they are not supported. This will eventually cause
- interoperability failures.
In addition, some limitations are inherited from the current NFSv4
implementation:
