Databox krb5p support

Does Databox support NFSv4 with sec=krb5p option to secure data in-transit during the file transfer process?

@EricJNordberg-6409 Windows does support krb5p as part of NFS4.1 support. It is my understanding, LDAP- Krb5p, that the Databox would have to participate in LDAP/Kerberos infrastructure.

Looking forward for your reply!
Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.

Thank you, Sumarigo.

IIn order to participate in the LDAP/Kerberos infrastructure, I assume the Databox would need to join the AD domain. Are instructions available on joining the Databox NAS to a domain? Would doing so then create issues when the Databox is received by Microsoft to load data into Azure?

Data Box does not have support for NFSv4 with sec=krb5p’

Thank you, Sumarigo.

Will Databox support ssh tunneling NFS:

Setup an SSH tunnel (local-to-remote port):

ssh -fNv -L 3049:localhost:2049 user@hostname
Mount the folder:

mount -t nfs -o port=3049 localhost:/home/proudlygeek /mnt/nfs-share
