Glusterfs logs

Description of problem:

Customer is getting an error when trying to NFS mount a sub-directory from a Solaris client.  The glusterfs logs are attached.

There was a suggestion to use "mountproto=tcp" option but that is not an available option in Solaris.

For now, we only have a workaround:

Hi Rajesh,

Thank you for the workaround, it works fine.
Can we expect a patch in the future release to avoid this procedure ?

Comment 3 Krishna Srinivas 2012-11-02 07:53:40 EDT
For now we have the workaround mentioned above. We won't need the workaround when we implement the non blocking UDP-layer. Right now we have only TCP implementation. Solaris nfs client uses UDP for MOUNT operations.

Based on discussion with Sayan, concluded this is not a supported OS.
