What is the NFS server running?
Comment 2 Jens Remme 2001-07-16 10:30:38 EDT
The NFS-Server runs on Redhat 7.0 System, with the standard NFS.
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-07-16 10:34:15 EDT
Can't reproduce this - a lot of our 7.x machines are nfs-exporting to other 
In any case, the error message is coming from the nfs kernel module, 
Comment 4 Jens Remme 2001-07-16 10:39:55 EDT
cat /var/log/messages

Jul 16 16:21:48 scriptserver kernel: svc: bad direction -612368099, dropping 

This is the only message.

Hmm. What networkcard ?
Comment 6 Arjan van de Ven 2001-07-18 05:34:43 EDT
Also, it could be the result of an attempt to do NFS v3, which older 7.0 kernels
didn't support. Does the mount succeed after all ? (eg the NFS v2 fallback)

The mount succeed after all, but the error messages make work impossible.
Comment 9 Jens Remme 2001-11-05 07:56:25 EST
Hello to you,

now I try the Version Redhat-7.2 and the same error is happening.

Please help me!
Comment 10 Steve Dickson 2004-08-11 07:00:58 EDT
This seems to be fixed in later kernels
