Description of problem:
mounting a nfs4 share hangs on the client. ctrl-c interupts - the
mount never completes.

Message : Jan 11 11:39:55 proton kernel: decode_getfattr: xdr error 10008!

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount -t nfs4 host:/ /mnt/whatever (regardles what options)

Actual Results:  mount hangs

Comment 1 Holger Burde 2005-01-11 11:24:01 EST
the mount may hang after some time (3 h compile / no err message).
restarting the server does not help.
reboot of the client failed (hang at shutdown). seems the bug is moo
both boxes have selinux enabled (targetet policy / unchanged). both
are FC3 with latest patches.
Comment 2 W. Michael Petullo 2005-01-17 01:08:45 EST
I am having a similar problem.  My NFS server is an i386 Fedora Core 3
box with all of the updates.  My NFS client is a PowerPC Raw Hide box.
 Mounts hang indefinitely on the client and I see messages like the
following on the client:

Jan 16 23:58:03 imp kernel: decode_getfattr: xdr error 10008!


Note that bug #137221 is very similar to this one.

Comment 3 W. Michael Petullo 2005-02-05 21:12:07 EST
I installed 2.6.10-1.1124_FC4 and I am still having the problem
documented in comment #2.
Comment 4 W. Michael Petullo 2005-03-23 13:30:23 EST
This seems to be fixed for me by upgrading the client with the following packages:


Technically, some kernels > 2.6.10-1.1124_FC4 and < 2.6.11-1.1191_FC4 worked,
but  2.6.11-1.1191_FC4 is the kernel I am using now.
Comment 5 Steve Dickson 2005-03-30 14:19:22 EST
Yes the nfs4 code in later kernel is much, much, much better
than in earlier kernels... 

So can I close this?
Comment 6 Holger Burde 2005-03-31 13:13:25 EST
