Description of problem:
Found at Connectathon:

In a nutshell, when a NFS client asks for an exclusive lock and the lock is already held, the client will block (waiting
for the lock). When the lock is released, the server will
call back to the client, granting the lock. The problem
is with the client authenticating that callback. The
client tries to use information from the export cache
which is clearly wrong since the that cache may or may
not exist (being its a server only cache)....

The symptoms of this issue (at least with a Sun and
SGI server) is a continues loop of grant/grant_reply network messages being sent.... 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Connectathon against SGI and Sun
2.
3.

This looks like it got fixed in U1, but wasn't tracked.
Steve, can you confirm we got all the bits included ?

Comment 8 Steve Dickson 2005-06-07 18:36:19 UTC
