hi having trouble understanding why you would have LUNS inside NFS volume. My understanding is LUNS are used in block storage - iSCSI or FC. NFS however is "file" level. So if I was using a windows box (no hypervisor) without esx id use a LUN for iSCSI or Fchannel.

If I had VMware then I wouldnt need to use a LUN in storage I could get esx (abstraction layer) to I/O disk and use nfs  - no LUN

Im reading a book that talks about maximum LUNS per nfs volume. So when would i have LUNS inside nfs volume.? thanks
