This article applies to: Shared File Services


The best options for mount vary based on the type and version of Unix, your application, file sizes, and other parameters.

Two strongly recommended options for all NFS mounts are:

  • Enable ‘tcp’ over ‘udp’
  • Enable NFSv3 over NFSv4

Linux example:
sudo mount SOME-SERVER:/SOME-SHARE –o tcp, vers=3 /SOME-MOUNTPOINT
