I was wrong and Sybrand is right. The confusion arises in that the
NFS must be an explicitly supported NAS with specific mount options.
Kevin Closson clarifies it in
Though I think his decoder ring "(Some Stupid Little Linux/Unix Server Exporting Filesystems via NFS) != NAS" should really be "(Some Stupid Little Linux/Unix Server Exporting Filesystems via NFS) != NFS." The Oracle docs may be a bit misleading when they have section titles like "Using Network Attached Storage or NFS File Systems" - looks like they didn't mean to use the dictionary conjunction alternative (or logical disjunction) there. Maybe it should be "Using NFS File Systems on Network Attached Storage." Or maybe they couldn't decide if one could do it or not, then someone said a definitive no.
