Extensions are proposed to NFS version 4 which enable it to support sessions, connection management, and operation atop RDMA-capable RPC. These extensions enable universal support for Exactly-once Semantics by NFSv4 servers, enhanced security, and multipathing and trunking of transport connections. These extensions provide identical benefit over both TCP and RDMA connection types.
