Why do I see additional NFSv4 mounts in /proc/mounts on Red Hat Enterprise

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Additional nfsv4 mounts which were not explicitly mounted are seen in  /proc/mounts.
  • Example: NFS Client which mounts the NFS4 / filesystem
    # mount /mnt
    # ls /mnt/work
    # grep /mnt /proc/mounts /mnt nfs4 rw,relatime,vers=4,rsize=65536,wsize=65536,namlen=255,hard,proto=tcp,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sys,clientaddr=,minorversion=0,addr= 0 0 /mnt/work nfs4 rw,relatime,vers=4,rsize=65536,wsize=65536,namlen=255,hard,proto=tcp,port=0,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sys,clientaddr=,minorversion=0,addr= 0 0
