It's not specifically NFS, but more related to how the application
stack was designed. We are essentially working around some 6 year old
design decisions. When they were built, little thought was placed on
allowing full access as the systems are on an isolated network. Over
the years, other systems began to interface to the original
application. Because one of those systems fall is a compliance target
system, the original box needs to be compliant also.
