Kerberos Support for the NFS Service

Support for Kerberos V4 clients was included in the Solaris 2.0 release. In the 2.6 release, the mount and share commands were altered to support NFS version 3 mounts that use Kerberos V5 authentication. Also, the share command was changed to enable multiple authentication flavors for different clients. See RPCSEC_GSS Security Flavor for more information about changes that involve security flavors. See Configuring Kerberos NFS Servers in System Administration Guide: Security Services for information about Kerberos V5 authentication.
