Abstract

The NFSv4 protocols NFSv4.0 [RFC7530], NFSv4.1 [RFC5661], and NFSv4.2 [RFC7862] introduce the concept of an NFS Domain. An NFSv4 Domain is defined as a set of users and groups using the NFSv4 name@domain user and group identification syntax with the same specified @domain.

         Requirements for NFSv4 Multi-Domain Namespace Deployment

Abstract

   This document presents requirements for the deployment of the NFSv4    protocols for the construction of an NFSv4 file namespace in    environments with multiple NFSv4 Domains.  To participate in an NFSv4    multi-domain file namespace, the server must offer a multi-domain-    capable file system and support RPCSEC_GSS for user authentication.    In most instances, the server must also support identity-mapping    services.
