Description Neal Becker 2004-03-30 08:09:46 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko)

Description of problem:
nfs mounts from this kernel's nfsd just hang forever.
cat /etc/exports
/,async) *.hns.com(rw,async),async) *.adg.labs.md.hnsnet(rw,async),async)

No error messages, just hang.
In fact, no message at all, not even normal "mount request...".

Here is an example, I'm telnetting to a client which should automount my home (I've been using this same setup forever, there is nothing new except the nfs server kernel):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS release 3 (Taroon Update 1)
Kernel 2.4.21-9.0.1.ELsmp on an i686
login: nbecker

[... still hung forever..., no message at all on server log...]

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt to mount

If I remove all overlapping entries from /etc/exports the problem is 
gone.  That is, in my previous exports, I had both IP address ranges 
and names that mapped to the same IPs.  I got rid of the names and 
kept only IP ranges, and now it's OK. 
IMHO, this fix is totally unacceptable.  It should work with this

Talk to the nfs-utils maintainer upstream. Parsing of the exports file
is kinda dicey.
Comment 3 Steve Dickson 2004-11-29 06:05:48 EST
would it be possible to post a AltSysRq-t backtrace of all the
the processes which would help tell me where the nfsds are hanging.

this still a problem with the 2.6.9 kernel ?
Comment 5 Neal Becker 2004-12-07 07:24:00 EST
No problem now.
