Subject: Specific IP per mounted share from same server

Message-ID: <> (raw)


I have an NFS server with 2 NICs, configured on different subnets. These subnets are on different network segments (2 dedicated switches).

I have clients that mount 2 distinct shares from this server. Expecting to spread the network load, I specified the mounts like so, in fstab:    /var/www    nfs defaults,rw,intr,nosuid,noatime,vers=4.1 0 0    /backup   nfs defaults,rw,intr,nosuid,noatime,vers=4.1 0 0

However, as you may find totally expected, I see both mounts connected to the same IP on the server. Specificly, the one specified for the first mount: on /var/www type nfs4 (rw,...) on /backup type nfs4 (rw,...)

Is this expected? Am I wrong to assume that this is a possible setup? If possible/forcible, what am I missing / doing wrong? :)

Thanks much,
