While the underlying structure is the same, e.g. both systems have /etc/idmapd.com, /etc/sysconfig/nfs. But, it doesn't appear that suse uses nfsmount.conf. openSUSE separates the startup services into client (/etc/init.d/nfs) and server (/etd/init.d/nfsserver). openSUSE seems to have GUI tools that are a bit "better". The tools for nfs client and nfs server are separate and seem "better" integrated with their firewall tool. All that said, I've been able to mount a directory using nfs4 on the suse system that was exported from a f12 system. So, far I've not found the right incantation to do the reverse. I should say "thanks" for bringing this sort of thing up. Nice diversion to normal things and a new procrastination excuse. :-) Ed FWIW, I've not spent any time trying to get a pure nfs4 environment. IMHO, it doesn't buy anything.
