Stale NFS mount
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
NFS connection becomes stale after appr. one hour
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
NFS client FC6
Linux alex 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 #1 SMP Mon Oct 16 14:54:20 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386
server FC5 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5
Steps to Reproduce:
1.server (FC5), /etc/exports, /storage/d4 192.168.100.*(rw,sync)
2.client (FC6), /etc/fstab
192.168.100.1:/storage/d4 /storage/d4 nfs
4.wait for 1hr
-bash: cd: d4 Stale NFS file handle
Connection to same exports works from FC2,FC4,FC5
Connection backomes staile using exports from other servers , FC2, FC4
Would it be possible to post a bzip2 binary tethereal network trace?
Something similar to:
tethereal -w /tmp/data.pcap host <server> ; bzip2 /tmp/data.pcap
By a pure coincidence i found a fix for a becoming stale connection
The solution for me is to declare export with a real ip of the server
After adding the line 220 ip address , the mount staying in place
Is this of any help , do you still need a dump ?
Yes.. if you would mind taking the time...
It appears this could be a DNS issue, so having a
trace will hopefully prove that theory...
Closing as not a bug since there seem to be a solution...
