Issue

NFS reads\writes do not occur on the desired volume after renaming ONTAP volume.

Example:

  1. NFS client mounts volume that named "vol1"
  2. Rename "vol1" to "vol2" on ONTAP
  3. Create a new volume named "vol1" again on ONTAP
  4. NFS client still expects to read\write file in volume: "vol1", but actually read\write data to "vol2"
