Hi all,

I really new to MapR and I have some questions about MapR-NFS, hope that someone could help on it.

 1. Is there any significant difference between standard NFS access and MapR NFS access?
 2. On a linux client (Redhat) can I use standard mount command to mount and write on MapR cluster?
 3. If yes, once a file is written through standard NFS mount to write on MapR cluster, the file will be replicated on all cluster nodes? How can I check that ?
 4. Do I need to setup special setting on client side in order to use MapR NFS (such as install and configure MapR NFS client)?
 5. For JAVA application, can I also use standard NFS mount to write MapR cluster?
 6.  If yes, once a file is written through standard NFS mount to write on MapR cluster, the file will be replicated on all cluster nodes? How can I check that ?
 7. Do I need to setup special setting on client side in order to use MapR NFS (such as install and configure MapR NFS client)?
