Description Konda Reddy 2002-05-27 07:15:41 EDT
Description of Problem:
I have a multi-threaded client, in which I create
CLIENT handle in the first thread, and then use
clnt_call in other child-threads to access server.
If the clnt_create() and clnt_call() are invoked in the same thread then 
clnt_call() returns success. 
On Linux RH7.1 there is no problem. but it's giving problem on RH7.2 (2.4.7-10 
#1 Thu Sep 6 17:21:28 EDT 2001 i586). 

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

How Reproducible:
Call clnt_create() in one thread and get the CLIENT pointer then call clnt_call
() in another thread by passing the same CLIENT pointer. It returns Failure.

I am attaching a file new.tar this contains
compile - to compile the sameple.
after compilation just run
1. dateproc &
2. rdate "hostname"  (hostname must be the host for the dateproc server)

you will see the problem. saying that clnt_call failed.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:
clnt_call() returns FAILURE.

Expected Results:
clnt_call() should return SUCCESS.
