    Thank you for submitting this request.
    There is an interface mismatch between the NFS support and the client(s) accessing the mounted NFS file system and APAR SE75873 has documented it as a permanent restriction.
    This does not affect all NFS mounts but as you've experienced, can cause problems in some cases
    We understand the issue with this behavior and will consider this request as we prioritize our future work.
