Description Robert Jones 2003-02-12 17:42:17 UTC
Description of problem: When an application dies unexpectedly while holding a 
file lock on an NFS mounted filesystem, the nfs-utils doesn't clean up the NFS 
locks.

5.1

How reproducible: Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:

2. Terminate the application with a kill -9

Actual results: The there are still read and write locks on the file belonging 
to the dead processes' PID.

I noticed the same problem on  hp-ux based nfs server and linux based nfs clients

Comment 2 Ernie Petrides 2004-05-04 00:09:37 UTC
Targeting this for RHEL3 U3, changing component to kernel.  -ernie

Comment 3 Ernie Petrides 2004-05-04 04:11:40 UTC
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U3
patch pool (in kernel version 2.4.21-15.1.EL).
