When to Use NFS Referrals

NFS referrals are useful when you want to create what appears to be a single set of file names across multiple servers, and you prefer not to use autofs for this purpose. Note that only NFS Version 4 servers can be used and that the servers must be running at least the Oracle Solaris 11.1 release to host a referral.
