Description cholcomb 2012-06-27 15:29:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Gluster's nfs share is able to be mounted in vmware 4 as a datastore.  I can create a vm on this datastore.  When I try to power up the vm, I can an error saying Vmware can not find its working directory, file or directory not found.  

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

How reproducible:
I can easily reproduce it

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a gluster share
2. Mount in vmware as a datastore
3. Create a vm using the gluster share as the datastore
4. Power up the vm and receive the error.
Actual results:
I see this in the gluster nfs log:
E [nfs3.c:3551:nfs3_rmdir_resume] 0-nfs-nfsv3: Unable to resolve FH: ( brick1 : b9c7953a-55fb-41d7-8201-06ce68a0f3ee

Expected results:
The vm would be able to read/write to the datastore without issues.

Can you check if http://review.gluster.com/#change,3617 fixes your issue? This might be a duplicate of 835336

I believe it is the same thing.  I saw an error in the logs about a hash value not working correctly.  Is that because the NFSv3 protocol is not completely supported?

It was a bug which showed up only with ESXi client. Please confirm if the patch fixes your issue.
