Description Tomas Smetana 2008-09-11 06:16:08 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #461901 +++

Created an attachment (id=316407)
Proposed patch for rsh-0.17-25.4

When using rcp to copy files to/from a NFS volume rcp doesn't report an error if the filesystem is full already, e.g.:

rcp biglocalfile remoteserver:/nfsshare/

Where bigfile is big enough to fill the "nfsshare", no error appears.  This may lead to silent data loss.

This is caused by NFS not reporting an error (ENOSPC) during write(2) but just in the close(2) calls (more info in the close manual page).
