Description john.peedle 2000-06-19 17:09:06 UTC
Problem:   syslog reports inode not found errors

Scenario:  We need to give access to files stored on a NetWare server to
several Solaris 2.7 servers. We cannot change the NetWare servers in any
way which precludes installing NetWare NFS. NetWare is v4.11. Proposed
solution was to mount the NetWare volumes on a Linux machine and export
them via NFS. Sun systems will then mount exported NFS shares. All appears
well until the Sun systems need to access a file after initial cataloging
of the directory. We then see large numbers of 'Inode not found' messages
in the Linux syslog, the desired file has no file information associated
with it (ls -al fails) and the Sun Server cannot open the file.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-07-03 17:02:00 UTC
Reassigned to kernel; that's where the filesystem is actually implemented.

Comment 2 Alan Cox 2000-08-08 22:05:26 UTC
Importing via NCPfs and exporting via NFS isnt possible to do a lack of stable
inode handles.
