Description Jiffin 2015-08-24 08:08:58 EDT
Description of problem:

The following tests(50,51) in mount-nfs-auth.t were failing spuriously for NETBSD machines. In those tests, nfs client is only allowed for reads. Here even though export file is updated correctly but it is not reflected in nfs-server context. So write will be allowed for those clients.

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

How reproducible:
10% when mount-nfs-auth.t executed in NETBSD machine.(Spurious failure)

Steps to Reproduce:
Run mount-nfs-auth.t in infinite loop . The test will fail at 50,51 cases(which checks for read-only client) at some point.

Actual results:
Servers allow write operation 

Expected results:
Server should not allow write operation.

Additional info:

It seems to be when contents of export file are updated , then _mnt3_auth_param_refresh_thread() should call _mnt3_has_file_changed(). But it is not happening for those above mentioned tests which can be understand from nfs-server log.

The following logs were missing after updating the export file :

[MSGID: 112147] [mount3.c:3720:_mnt3_auth_param_refresh_thread] 0-nfs-mount: File /autobuild/install/var/db/glusterd/nfs/exports changed, updating exports,

[MSGID: 112151] [mount3.c:3752:_mnt3_auth_param_refresh_thread] 0-nfs-mount: Purging auth cache
