Answer

  • Disabling pNFS will stop the NetApp server from handing out new layouts
    • NFS clients should not have an issue with this (and previously handed out layouts will still be used)
    • It is always a good idea to test new configurations on a test vserver before making changes in production
  • Enabling pNFS may add extra complexity
