SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

Please tell me if this is possible. I have 3 servers. One is Sun 10, second one is RedHat AS 4U6 and one Mac OSX server.
On my Linux box i have an NFS file system mounted from the Sun box. I would like re-export this file system through my Linux box to the Mac server. I've got everything setup in /etc/exports on the Linux box, it looks like this:
I think NFS V4 will not allow this type of NFS spaghetti, mainly for security and data integrity reasons. I've had a similar issue trying to use an NFS file server share as a SAMBA share from a desktop machine, it just doesn't really work.
I also need to be able to export a CIFS (Samba) share via NFS, but have not found any option to allow this. It sucks when the designers remove some cool or useful feature "in spite" of security. When will designers allow users to take our own decisions? Anyway, you're saying that nfs4 won't allow this, but, will nfs < 4?
I think NFS 3 will allow some of this, but I wouldn't recommend it! If you can mount a CIFS share, you can probably set up machines to use that share directly, rather than go through the NFS option. That would be my recommendation anyway.
