There might be many reasons. For example, in a mixed environment where you
need NFS access to the data on a Lustre file system and the client's
platform might be not supported by Lustre. Or there might be too large
amount of data stored on the Lustre to make a transition.

By the way, topic author may consider of using (or waiting for) a pNFS
layout driver for Lustre to take the advantages of both NFS and parallel
file system.
