In summary, there are no implications other than the strange output in
df and problems with accessing files exceeding 2GByte (a non-issue for
our systems), as nfs code was already 2+GB proof in 4.x. For cosmetic
purposes on the SunOS 4.x machines, DiskSuite has a couple of utilities
for clients which would make outputs look right in df, however it is not
essential to install this.

Original question:

> I have a mixed environment of SS20's and IPC's with the SS20's running
> Solaris 2.5.1 and the IPC's running SunOS 4.1.3_U1 and 4.1.1 (for
> reasons I won't go into).
> An SS20 151 acts as the web server, mail server, file server, apps
> server, and nis master. It is running Solaris 2.5.1.
> I have just bought an additional 4.2GByte hard drive for the server and
> wanted to be able to partition it into two partitions of approximately 3
> and 1 GBytes respectively. Solaris 2.5.1 can handle this but what are
> the implications of nfs mounting the 3 Gbyte partition read/write on the
> machines running SunOS 4.1.1 and 4.1.3_U1 ?
