NFS Client Failover

Dynamic failover of read-only file systems provide a high level of availability for read-only resources that are already replicated, such as man pages, other documentation, and shared binaries. Failover can occur any time after the file system is mounted. Manual mounts can now list multiple replicas, much like the automounter in previous releases. The automounter has not changed, except that failover no longer waits until the file system is remounted. For more information, see How to Use Client-Side Failover and Client-Side Failover.
