NFS force only nfs v4


Dear Linux experts,

I set up a NFS server on RHEL6 and i set the following on the /etc/nfsmount.conf:

[ NFSMount_Global_Options ]
Defaultvers=4
Nfsvers=4

However, when i checked the nfs status : nfsstat, i got these :

==============================================================================

==============================================================================

This NFS server seems to give not only NFS v4, but also v2 and v3.
ANd if not mistaken, there are some v3 connections still running.

When i checked all the clients, they all running v4:
===================================================
Server rpc stats:
calls badcalls badauth badclnt xdrcall
0 0 0 0 0

Client rpc stats:
calls retrans authrefrsh
2057241 0 2058046

===================================================





all the clients have the same mount setting in /etc/fstab:
=========================================================
nfsserver:/home /home nfs4 rw,sync,hard,intr 0 0
=========================================================






Questions:
==========
- How to force NFS server to use only v4, why the config /etc/nfsmount.conf has no effect?
- How to check which client is using lower version of NFS (v2-v3)?


Thanks in advance,


Teddy

See A4 http://nfs.sourceforge.net/ and use 4 instead of 3 and 3 instead of 2.
