It has been a while but I believe I was told that you had to run aklog
because you were "logging into the storage". This made sense at the
time since I couldn't access a remote system without first logging into
it as well. We weren't big users of NFS at the time and this didn't
I would hazard that rpc.gssd exists because someone didn't want to
alter the "NFS experience".
