NFS 4.1 to be tested for MQ HA on Linux environment

The NFS version that IBM confirmed that the client could use is NFS v4.0, where  NFS4.1 is available in the market and provides more features, such as cashing and a higher security level.
To move the Netapp Volume to Cloud, the Netapp server provides NFS4.1, where the NFS client on MQ servers can only use NFS4.0(officially confirmed by IBM). This is a road blocker for migration to the cloud for MQ HA that uses the NFS.
Can you please test NFS4.1 and confirm if we can start using it for MQ HA?

    There are a wide variety of file system options available for use in the market today and there is a minimum set of requirements that a file system needs to achieve in order to be considered compliant with IBM MQ and if a file system meets those requirements, IBM will provide support. Those requirements are documented here: (toggle the version on the top left of the page to see the specific requirements/test for your IBM MQ version).

    While NFS 4.1 is not on our list of tested file systems, provided the client has set it up correctly with IBM MQ such that it passes the file system test that is documented here, IBM will support it.
