Hello Vikas,

How do the NFS clients react to such a failover? Will the I/O just
temporarily stall and then proceed once connectivity is resumed or
will running transactions be aborted?

Best regards,

 Your understanding is correct. Whether using the native NFS
translator or re-export through unfsd, NFS clients only connect to the
management IP. If you want failover for the NFS server, you'd setup a
virtual IP using ucarp (http://www.ucarp.org) and the clients would
only use this virtual IP.
