Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.x
  • NFS

Answer

  • Host name resolution is needed if the export policy rules contain hostnames.
  • If the clientmatch section in the export policy rules contain hostnames and DNS is unavailable, access validation will fail and NFS clients may not be able to access the shares.
