Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Other than "the same for the client AND the server", does the NFSv4 domain name have to be set to anything in particular?

I mean, does it have to be some domain in my LAN or something?

No, it doesn't have to be set to anything particular. However, it makes sense to choose a DNS domain name that would uniquely identify a user account (username@domain) just like an e-mail address does.

Thanks - a very clear answer. The whole "domain" bit threw me I think. Perhaps they should call it a "zone" or something ;-) –  Dougal Jul 19 '10 at 8:36
