This document discusses issues relevant to the deployment of the NFSv4 protocols in situations allowing for the construction of an NFSv4 file namespace supporting the use of multiple NFSv4 domains and utilizing multi-domain capable file systems. Also described are constraints on name resolution and security services appropriate to the administration of such a system. Such a namespace is a suitable way to enable a Federated File System supporting the use of multiple NFSv4 domains.
