Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 607606
slow nfs shutdown
Last modified: 2010-10-27 18:32:39 EDT
Description of problem:
If I move my laptop away from my wireless AP and try to shutdown, stopping some nfs service takes a long time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Almost always, but haven't really tested it
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot, connect to wireless home AP
2. Put machine to sleep, drive to the office
3. Try to shutdown
Machine apparently freezes but it is actually doing something shutting down some nfs related service.
Eventually, after a long time, for each volume in /etc/exports, and each machine on it's export list (which can add up very quickly), it prints "machine has not a valid IP address", (I suspect the server is trying to inform the non-reachable client of something) with a long delay between messages.
Shutdown then continues at normal pace.
A shutdown that doesn't take this long
Has DNS gong down or somthing?
DNS has gone down in the sense that either I'm not connect to any access point, or, the case above, some machine names don't resolve outside of my house...
Here latest nfs-utils release
Please download test to see if you are still able to see this problem
Finally tried this today and machine rebooted instantly with the above version, i.e. no delays.
nfs-utils-1.2.2-6.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
nfs-utils-1.2.2-6.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
