Could you be a little more specific on the issues you have having with HP NFS?
We are trying to use HP/CIFS(samba) and are having a good bit of trouble. In
particular, very poor performance on connecting to automounted file systems.
Best I can tell at this point, only automounted file systems from HP
workstations. Sun/Samba combination works ok in the same environment.
