NFS - newer version - Beta?
I currently have 1.2.7276 installed and all is working well. I have Windows Home Server 2011 on an HP N40l. I would like to test out NFS though for my Raspberry Pi as I understand it is more "efficient" than SMB - less overhead and the like. I had found several posts on how to add NFS to WHS 2011 - but then immediately discovered it wouldn't work with DrivePool - but then found the post noting it had been added to DrivePool in a later (beta?) release.
So after much Googling around - I'm trying to determine if I should upgrade to the latest version and/or if there are any risks involved? Is it a BETA version? I also saw a reference to a version 2.0 of DrivePool but I can't find any links to what that is...I must be missing something obvious here :-(
Can anyone advise / provide advice on upgrading?
thanks..I'm going to keep reading...but appreciate advice.
While I'm thinking about it - any experience with NFS on WHS 2011? Everything I've read seems to indicate it's less overhead and/or allows for "better" streaming.
