|Trusted Extensions Configuration and Administration Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
Trusted Extensions software recognizes labels on NFS Version 3 (NFSv3) and NFSv4. You can use one of the following sets of mount options:
vers=4 proto=tcp vers=3 proto=tcp vers=3 proto=udp
Trusted Extensions has no restrictions on mounts over the tcp protocol. In NFSv3 and NFSv4, the tcp protocol can be used for same-label mounts and for read-down mounts. Read-down mounts require a multilevel port (MLP).
For NFSv3, Trusted Extensions behaves like Oracle Solaris. The udp protocol is the default for NFSv3, but udp is used only for the initial mount operation. For subsequent NFS operations, the system uses tcp. Therefore, read-down mounts work for NFSv3 in the default configuration.
In the rare case that you have restricted NFSv3 mounts to use the udp protocol for initial and subsequent NFS operations, you must create an MLP for NFS operations that use the udp protocol. For the procedure, see Example 16-19.
A Trusted Extensions system can also share its file systems with unlabeled hosts. A file system that is exported to an unlabeled host is writable if its label equals the label that is assigned to the remote host by the exporting zone. A file system that is exported to an unlabeled host is readable only if its label is dominated by the label that is assigned to the remote system.
Communication with systems that are running a release of Trusted Solaris software is possible only at a single label. The Trusted Extensions system and the Trusted Solaris system must assign to their peer a template with the unlabeled host type. The unlabeled host types must specify the same single label. As an unlabeled NFS client of a Trusted Solaris server, the label of the client cannot be ADMIN_LOW.
The NFS protocol that is used is independent of the local file system's type. Rather, the protocol depends on the type of the sharing computer's operating system. The file system type that is specified to the mount command for remote file systems is always NFS.
