Description of problem:
When the client (AS2.1u3) mount a directory via NFS from an NFS Server
HP-UX 10.20, displaying contents of the share with for example 'ls'
causes the client to hang and a reboot is required to recover from it.
The customer has tried with RH 7.2 and the problem recurs, however RH
7.3, RH 9 and RHEL AS 3 fix the problem. There was a similar bug #
51633 (the closest I could get to a similar issue) fixed by installing
Please see attachment with a Kernel Ooops.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.NFS Server: HP-UX 10.20 exporting shares
2.NFS Client: AS2.1 u3 with latest kernel 2.4.9-3.35ent mounting those
3.'cd' into the exported dir and 'ls'
Actual Results: The client hangs and a reboot is required at this point.
Expected Results: Full view of contents in the exported dir.

Kernel oops captured.
This is the entry of the /etc/exports in the HP-UX.
This is how the share is mounted by Linux AS2.1u3 client /etc/fstab:
ancianix:/var/tmpdir /var/tmpdir nfs rw,auto 1 2
ancianix:/prj/paso/log /prj/paso/log nfs rw,auto 1 2
ancianix:/prj/gelido/PASO/log /prj/gelido/PASO/log nfs rw,auto 1 2
ancianix:/prj/gelido/PASO/fdat /prj/gelido/PASO/fdat nfs rw,auto 1 2
ancianix:/opt/apli/propias/www /opt/apli/propias/www nfs rw,auto 1 2
ancianix:/opt/apli/propias/ws /opt/apli/propias/ws nfs rw,auto 1 2

The right file format kernel_oops
This happens no matter which of the exports is mounted?
Can you add in a new one and reproduce it with that one?
Finally, and perhaps less possible if the HP-UX machine is in
production, can you make a backup copy of the exports file, and them
completely empty it out except for a test export? And try mounting that?
