    Thank you for this request. IBM i supports NFSv4 for both client and server. At this time we are not aware that there is a trend toward requiring any of the features defined by NFSv4.1.

    This request was from the customer in which they were looking for the help for NFS4.1 file support. Hence I was looking for this info.
    As such no minimum level of support we were looking.
    Yes we are looking NFS support for server and client perspective ( both).

    Please answer the following questions to help us better direct development consideration of supporting the NFS 4.1 protocol version.

    -- Are there particular features of the protocol that would be more useful to you than others?
    -- Is there a minimum level of NFS 4.1 feature support that would be needed for your requirements?
    -- Is support required for both the IBM i NFS client and server? Only the server? Only the client?
