I found on the web that there was an "original NBD" that only could handle volumes up to 4 GiB. Several "extended nbd" were developed, incompatible to the original NBD. How do they differ? Which protocol do all these NBD use? Limitations in current NBD implementations? --188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:41, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
Since I am the maintainer of the nbd tools, I feel it would be inappropriate (under WP:COI and WP:NPOV) for me to update this page. However, the example on this page is largely outdated:
Running nbd-server from command line with a port number, as shown, was superseded as a method since nbd 2.9.0, released in 2006 (2.9 added configuration files)
Exporting network block devices by port number rather than by name, as shown, was superseded as a method since nbd 2.9.17, released in 2010. This version also deprecated the use of the shown command line.
Since nbd-server 3.10, exporting network block devices by port number is no longer supported, which makes the shown example not functional anymore.
Hello! Per WP:NOTMANUAL, it is best not to include such instructions at all, so I've removed the entire section. Anyone interested in the configuration and usage details can consult the project's man pages, official documentation, etc. Hope you agree. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 10:48, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
That works too :-) Thanks! Yoe (talk) 14:04, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
