Description Chris Tracy 2012-09-09 23:54:27 EDT
Description of problem:
Bug 717283 appears to be back in 6.3 with nfs-utils-1.2.3-26.  This results in any iSCSI hosted filesystems being uncleanly disconnected on shutdown/reboot, hence the high severity.

As before, the problem appears to be that /etc/rc.d/init/nfs creates the lockfile "/var/locks/subsys/nfsd" (note the trailing 'd') while /etc/rc.d/rc looks for the file "/var/locks/subsys/nfs" and thus doesn't think it needs to shut down nfs.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount filesystem via iSCSI
2. Export filesystem via NFS
3. Shutdown or reboot system
4. Filesystem does not cleanly unmount because NFS has it locked
Actual results:
NFS not properly stopped when shutting-down/rebooting

Expected results:
NFS should stop when rebooting, allowing iSCSI mounts to cleanly unmount.

Additional info:
Comment 2 Mark 2012-10-04 10:45:41 EDT
The implications of this bug are wider. The running nfsd prevents
clean unmounting of /var, regardless of whether this is exported.

Here's a patch with a fix.

In future, perhaps the script would be more appropriately named
'nfsd', to clarify that it is the NFS server.
