Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 230094
kernel panic with nfsd
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:20:02 EST
Description of problem:
Was running 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp. Used up2date to install
kernel-smp-2.6.9-42.0.8.EL. Rebooted into new kernel. kernel panic at about
the time it entered init 5 (at GDM screen). Happened after every reboot with
the new kernel. Was able to boot sucessfully into previous (2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I saw this before with 2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp but an update to 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp
seemed to fix the problem.

script that has never failed to reproduce bug on redhat 4 nfs server
run from solaris 8 or 9 nfs client
This looks like same bug im hitting.
do you have solaris clients will ?
I've reproduced it on demand by
forcing solaris a nfs client to use nfsv2.

updated test case
Updated the test case. For me this reproduces the panic every time. I didn't
even need to do a write but only a listing.
Nice job Jeff with the test case! Yes I have Solaris 9 clients.
Bumping the severity up a bit.
Kernel dudes, any tips on what else we can do to troubleshoot this? Thanks.
disables nfsv2 and I believe works around the bug.
Dont fall for MOUNTD_NFS_V2=no it does NOT disable nfsv2.
So why are some of your solaris clients using nfsv2?
For me, my network was dropping packets (bad switch)
so Im working on the theory that this caused a mount
request v3 to fail, so solaris fell back to nfsv2.
Does your network drop packets ? Or some solaris clients
configured to use nfsv2 ?
