Ok, I just like to have a full understanding of the security implications of any setup I have running.
email@example.com, and if so how does the S7000 validate that account?
Does the NFS Exceptions security just work along the same principles as iSCSI initiator security, in that you allow/deny certain hosts (in this case hostnames rather than initiator names)?
ESX mount NFS volumes as the "root" user (UID 0). It term's of NFS "root" is automatically demoted to user "nobody" for security reasons.
So on the S7000 you can do two things
1) Create a share with access control of "nobody" and "other"2) Under NFS Exceptions select "ROOT ACCESS" check box for specific host
