Enabling NFS over TCP on a NetApp

Set the option nfs.tcp.enable to on. This is not a default.

If you are getting errors like:

mount: RPC: Authentication error; why = Client credential too weak

You will have to set the option nfs.mount_rootonly to off. The problem is that mount requests are coming from ports higher than 1024 and are getting discarded as client (ie non-root level) requests. This might be happening because client-level programs are making the requests, or you are making so many simultaneous mount requests that the ports below 1024 are saturated, resulting in requests from "high" ports. (Referred to internally as the syndrome.)

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
