Description Joe Julian 2012-05-01 07:36:51 UTC
For the third time in two days, someone has come into the IRC channel with an invalid lock has been held on a file that needed to be self-healed. Unmounting all the clients did not clear it and the only way to clear it was to stop the volume and restart it.

It would be nice if there was a way to clear a lock that has been determined to be invalid. Maybe setting a special xattr from the client?
