Description Eric Sokolowsky 2010-10-06 15:37:27 EDT
Description of problem:

Fedora 14 does not properly serve files with nfs, even to same host.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. [ edit /etc/exportfs to export any mounted directory to local subnet ]
2. service nfs start
3. mkdir /mnt/test
4. mount -t nfs -o rw,hard,intr,bg xxx:/path /mnt/test
Actual results:

A message onscreen that the request is being backgrounded; multiple messages in /var/log/messages: "mount to NFS server '' failed: Stale NFS file handle, retrying"

Expected results:

mounted filesystem

Additional info:

Tested on Mac Mini 2010 model running Fedora 14 beta, kernel or kernel I also tried the same steps on Fedora 13 and it worked without trouble. I tried to use Fedora 14 as the client and Fedora 13 as the NFS server and was successful. I was unable to use Fedora 13 as the client and Fedora 14 as the server; the Fedora 13 machine showed exactly the same symptoms and didn't mount the volume.
