NFS conflicts between 2.3 & 2.4

NFS conflicts between 2.3 & 2.4

Post by Charles H. Buchhol » Tue, 22 Aug 1995 04:00:00



I have an NFS server and some timesharing systems which are NFS
clients for home directories, /var/mail, and executables.  I also have
a bunch of diskless systems.  I'm considering upgrading them to 2.4
piecemeal.  Has anyone seen any problems running a 2.4 client with a
2.3 server, or visa versa?  I'm especially concerned about /var/mail,
because the timesharing systems will really stress the file locking
facilities in that file system.

Any experiences, good or bad?

Thanks,

1. Release Date of 2.5 && Diff. Between 2.3 & 2.4

Hi,

I was recently upgrading one of our sparc server from 1.1.1B to Solaris
2,
and discovered that the latest version we had was 2.3.

We used to have a software maintenance agreement with a support firm,
which
included free OS upgrades. The agreement terminated in October 1996.

When I inquired why we hadn't received 2.4, they said that it was
because 2.4
was merely 2.3 with a lot of patches applied on it, and hence, they
didn't
feel necessary to send one to us.

I'd like to find out 1. whether 2.4 is indeed 2.3 + bug patched, and
2. when 2.5 was first released.

Thanks in advance.
