For one of our platforms I have about 20 MSSQL 2K3 machines that need to drop their backups onto a few NetApp boxes (which then copy the backups to other data centres and does long-term storage).
These NetApps are currently only used by our Linux boxes and are NFS-only, I can buy the SMB licences if needed but need to consider a stable/trustworthy Windows NFS client.
Do you trust the built-in Windows SUA NFS client enough? Is there a 'better' third-party NFS client you'd recommend? Or would you just use SMB to mount the backup volumes?
