Location-related attributes in NFS version 4.0 are used to support the migration and replication of server file systems. In this document, we describe an additional use for these attributes as a mechanism to enable client discovery of an NFS version 4.0 server's trunking capabilities. The interaction of trunking with migration and replication is also clarified. This document updates RFC 7530.
