NFS, CIFS, and Zones

NFS, CIFS, and Zones

For years, users could not share NFS mounts from a Zone in Solaris. This may be about to change!

With PSARC/2010/280, there is a chance that we will see the ability to share NFS from a Zone, but I can only hope that we will be able to see overlapping shares, so we can share those same Zones shared from a Global Zone, simultaneously.

I hope we will be able to share the root zones via NFS from the global zone as well as directories separately from each individual zone. This is a great feature for hop-off servers.

Yes, the DMZ implementations do matter.
