           NFS Version 4.1 Update for Multi-Server Namespace
                  draft-ietf-nfsv4-mv1-msns-update-03

Abstract

   This document presents necessary clarifications and corrections
   concerning features related to the use of attributes in NFSv4.1
   related to file system location.  These features include migration,
   which transfers responsibility for a file system from one server to
   another, and facilities to support trunking by allowing discovery of
   the set of network addresses to use to access a file system.  This
   document updates RFC5661.
