NFSv4 is not just a simple protocol evolution of NFSv3. It has been fully redesigned to overcome the limitations of its predecessors. As a consequence it works in a different way.
This Note will make some comparisons between NFSv4 and NFSv3, and introduce how to migrate from NFSv3 to NFSv4.
NFSv4 requires a naming service, such as Network Information Service (NIS) or LDAP, for ID mapping
It is assumed that you have a working NIS or LDAP service on your network. This note does not describe how to set up the NIS or LDAP service.
