Linux (OEL): Need help with NFS Versions

Hello All,

Not sure if this is the right forum to ask this questions. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

1. How do we find what is the default NFS version on a Linux Client? How do we change the default - is there some system config files to do that?
2. What needs to be checked on both the NFS server and client to check if V4 is supported?
3. Which config files need to be changed or what needs to be installed for nfs4 support both at server and client?
4. What are the services required for NFS V4:
a) At the Server?
b) At the Client?

1. NFS will automatically negotiate with the server to find a common NFS version.
Version 4 isn't very different from older versions.

See for detail.

BTW Just used this command after a NFS session - it doesn't mean much to me!
jeremy@hector:~$ sudo nfsstat -l
[sudo] password for jeremy:
nfs v3 server total: 1
------------- ------------- --------
nfs v3 server null: 1

nfs v3 client total: 1773014
------------- ------------- --------
nfs v3 client getattr: 649
