Thanks to the lightning quick responses from:

Ken Zachmann
Darrel Dunham
Chad Johnson
Jay Lessert

The consensus is that there is no cause for alarm and that NFS handles 
everything just fine.

Thanks again


Original message:

We have  an NFS file system which is exported Read-Only to a client. 
Would there be any issues at the clients end if the content of the files 
system was updated at the end of the connection which is exporting the 
file system?

I know (from experience) that a file system such as one residing on a 
SAN cannot reliably be mounted by two different hosts (even RW and RO on 
different hosts) if using the Solaris UFS file system. I was wondering 
if similar issues existed for an NFS exported file system? Or is there 
even anything to worry about?
