Description Need Real Name 2002-05-12 22:45:22 EDT
Description of Problem:

The following error messages were seen in /var/log/messages:

nfs_refresh_inode: inode number mismatch
expected (0x73d8/0x434a80), got (0x0/0x0)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How Reproducible:

This has only been seen one time on one server so far.

Steps to Reproduce:

Unknown.  The server in question pulls a sustained 30Mb/s off an NFS server, so
it may be load related.

This is still showing up occassionally, with differing values for the "got"
message.  We have still only seen this on the one host, though.

I wonder if this is related to the tcp bugs you saw... I'm waiting for a fix for
those to see if that fix fixes this too
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-05-21 11:10:07 EDT
We're using NFS over UDP, not TCP, and the dates of the events do not match, so
unless the TCP bug is causing a memory scribble somewhere, I do not beleve there
is a relationship between the two.

FWIW, this is in devserv's logs for today:

nfs_refresh_inode: inode number mismatch
expected (0xf/0x6ebe3), got (0xf/0xd3a10)

This is filer issue that we are currently addressing...
the work-around is to reexport the filesystems on the filer
