Maximun number of NFS clients

What is the maximum number of NFS clients can be added to each NFS export ?

We have some shares use for provisioning and started seeing clients are in large number these days.  Is there any alternate way instead of adding IP addresses to the Export ?

These addresses are from different subnets, So we cannot add all subnets to the export

Re: Maximun number of NFS clients

Hi khkris,

I have been digging for an answer to address at least your first question. I have not been able to find anything regarding the maximum number of NFS clients per export as I believe that has more to do with your cluster configuration.

There is a maximum number of exports based on your OneFS version.

There is a maximum number of NFS clients per node based on your NFS version.

I don't know what version of OneFS you are working with, but here is the documentation on OneFS 7.2 (Technical Specifications Guide) that discusses the limits starting on page 3.

Have you considered collecting the IPs in netgroups?

netgroups can help removing complexity from the actual

export settings.
