NetApp plugin for Cinder - Vserver

Can someone explain in a bit more detail what is meant with this sentence in the config-reference guide for NetApp driver. Especially the part in bold.

netapp_vserver = None
(StrOpt) This option specifies the virtual storage server (Vserver) name on the storage cluster on which provisioning of block storage volumes should occur. If using the NFS storage protocol, this parameter is mandatory for storage service catalog support (utilized by Cinder volume type extra_specs support). If this option is specified, the exports belonging to the Vserver will only be used for provisioning in the future. Block storage volumes on exports not belonging to the Vserver specified by this option will continue to function normally.

Does this mean that the Vserver will be unavailable outside of the OpenStack environment?
