Asynchronous vs. Synchronous behavior in NFS"Asynchronous" yields better performance at the cost of possible data corruption if the server reboots while still holding unwritten data. The reason is the Async option instructs the server to lie to the client, telling the client that all data has indeed been written to stable storage.With Synchronous behavior the server will not complete (reply to the client) until the local file system has written all data/metadata to the disk.After enabling the NFS Service the Status light should be green.
