From Bugzilla Helper:

CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
I have nfs mounted an ext3 filesystem from one Red Hat AS3.0 server 
to another Red Hat AS3.0 server. The client hangs after cd-ing to the 
mount point. Following is the error message in the messages file:

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Ajay

If you are looking for immediate help with this, and have an
up-to-date entitlement, you would be best off calling Red Hat's
Support, 800-REDHAT1, or going to http://www.redhat.com/support

Does this still happen with more recent RHEL3 kernels?
Comment 3 Neil Horman 2004-11-11 14:36:11 EST
I think this is a dup of bz118839, which should be fixed in RHEL3 U4.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 118839 ***

Note that lines must be added to /etc/modules.conf in order to
override the default values of nfs3_acl_max_entries and/or
nfsd3_acl_max_entries.
