Turning on NFS

TimmyT
Hi, So running 9.5 and just wondering about NFS. We currently are using iSCSI but it is proving to be a pain. When I take a look I can see that the NFS service is created and running but no NFS LIFS are found. If I go and create LIFS to associate with NFS will it have an impact on the current iSCSI configuration\performance?

They run over IP.  

I would create a seperate NFS SVM,  so you can tinker and not worry about doing anything to your prod iSCSI.   Let me know if you need assist on doing that.

Do you have a seperate NFS SVM/vserver created?  

TimmyT
No I don't. From what I can see under the SVMs is that NFS is allowed with CIFS and iSCSI.
