Description Sachin Prabhu 2010-06-30 21:54:27 UTC
the nfs(5) man page states

       The fstype field contains either "nfs" (for version 2 or version 3  NFS
       mounts)  or  "nfs4"  (for NFS version 4 mounts).  The nfs and nfs4 file
       system types share similar mount options, which are described below.

This is incorrect. The fstype nfs can also denote NFS version 4 mounts. fstype nfsv4 is also provided for legacy reasons.

Comment 2 J. Bruce Fields 2010-11-22 16:12:12 UTC
This is fixed in utils/mount/nfs.man of upstream nfs-utils (now reads "The fstype field contains "nfs", for whatever version of the  protocol.")  There's been a lot of work on that man page which we may want to incorporate.

Comment 3 Ric Wheeler 2010-11-22 18:43:17 UTC
Bruce, can you pull in and update that man page for us?

Comment 6 Jeff Layton 2011-01-19 19:15:01 UTC
Looks like this was fixed as a side-effect of Steved's rebase of
nfs-utils to 1.2.3 for bug 637198. Closing as a duplicate of that bug...
