Sorry, NFSoIB is more commonly known as NFSoRDMA.

This link explains it quite well.
http://www.opengridcomputing.com/nfs-rdma.html.

Currently my export looks like this.

/dev/shm				10.149.0.0/16(rw,fsid=1,no_root_squash,insecure)

Where 10.149.0.0 is the IPoIB interface. NFSoRDMA uses TCP/IP to
establish and tear down connections and then RDMA for data transfer.
Using TCP for connections enables high availability setups.
