Description of problem:
When running nfs client and mounting an export from a HP700 server running HP-
UX, not all files are always displayed within mounted directories.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount an nfs export
2.do an "ll" or view the mount from nautilus
Actual Results: Certain directories (usually ones with more than 300 files)
report 0 items found in the directory.
Expected Results: Correct file counts to be reported
The client machine is an HP Vectra Vli8 with a 3Com 3c905b NIC. I have another
identical machine running Redhat Linux 6.1 which performs this same task with
no problem, it also has a 3Com 3c905b NIC. I have tried changing read and write
sizes to 1024, as well as many other trial read and write sizes to no avail. I
have used Redhat Network to update the 7.2 kernel to 2.4.9-31, as well as
updateing all installed packages, nfs-utils included.
Can you try the latest kernel from RAWHIDE?
The 2.4.17-0.18 Rawhide kernel seems to have fixed the nfs client issue. Do you
know what the problem is with 2.4.7-10 and 2.4.9-31?
There were a large number of nfs related bug-fixes added to the kernel between
2.4.10 and 2.4.18. I suspect one of these addressed the problem you were
