Description of problem:
I have a 12 node cluster all running 2.4.20-18.7smp.athlon kernels and an NFS
server running the 2.4.20-19.7smp.i686 kernel.
After upgrading one cluster node to the 2.4.20-19.7smp.athlon kernel, I get an
"NFS server not responding" error after 1-2 days of uptime. The NFS mount stops
responding on this machine. All of the other nodes continue to operate properly
and can see the NFS mount. After going back to the 2.4.20-18 kernel on this
node, the NFS problem goes away.
I'm not sure if it is a problem with the 2.4.20-19 client NFS code, or if this
requires both 2.4.20-19 on client and server to see the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 2.4.20-19.7smp.athlon kernel
2. Wait 1-2 days
Actual Results: NFS mount gives NFS server not responding messages
Expected Results: Nothing
