Description Konrad J. Hambrick 2003-02-16 03:06:20 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9-31 i686)

Description of problem:
We use ncpmount to rsync our Novell 4.2
server thru a rh7.2 box to a server with
a tape drive:

ncpmount -S NovellBox /mnt/Novell -U UUUUUUUU -P PPPPPPPP
cd /mnt/Novell
rsync -essh -avz --exclude=sys/ --ignore-errors . /var/novell


rsync starts ...
building file list ... link_stat . : Stale NFS file handle

then exits

This function has worked for 18-months-or-so
until last week when we upgraded from 2.4.9-31smp
to 2.4.18-27.7xsmp.

The Novell Volume mounts ok.

I can cd to:        /mnt/Novell/vol1

I can execute:      ls -laR

I can NOT execute:  find /mnt/Novell -print

I can NOT execute:  rsync ...

I can execute:      cp -p some-file /tmp/

Wazzup ?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ncpmount -S novell-box /mnt/novell -U UUUUUUUU -P PPPPPPPP
2. cd /mnt.novell
3. rsync -essh -avz --exclude=sys/ --ignore-errors . some-target/

Actual Results:  rsync starts ...
building file list ... link_stat . : Stale NFS file handle

Expected Results:  Incremental backup of Novell files to a Linux Directory

Additional info:

This __did__ work with ncpfs- and kernel-smp-2.4.9-31

Comment 1 Konrad J. Hambrick 2003-02-16 03:25:09 UTC
I forgot to mention I saw a similar bug
via google on the LKML:


Also Andrew Morton has 'fixed' ncpfs for
the 2.5 tree just today:

Andrew Morton <akpm@digeo.com>:
   o ncpfs compile fix
   o de4x5 compile fix

Also in Steps to Reproduce, Step 2 should read:  cd /mnt/novell

Thanks again.

Comment 2 Konrad J. Hambrick 2003-03-21 05:21:39 UTC
Installed kernel-smp-2.4.18-27.7.x.i686.RPM

ncpmount now works.

Thanks !

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
