Just run a basic test using an nfs storage domain.  To do extra verification, you could use nfs domains from different vendor's servers.

Root squashing on nfs can cause problems when sanlock (which runs as root), tries to access files.  sanlock adds itself to additional groups to give itself permission based on its group id rather than user id.

We've had to go back to running as non-root.
