SubjectNFS issue: Irix server, Linux client - inode number mismatch
We have an SGI Irix 6.5-based server running NFS3 with Linux 2.4.7
clients attaching. Whenever the server crashes, the Linux clients have
problems with their NFS mounts. Typically, they're unusable until after
reboot.

The /var/log/messages file on the Linux client side has the following
messages:

Oct 8 16:01:27 lrender2 automount[22485]: expired
/usr/local/sgi/wbfa
Oct 8 16:01:27 lrender2 kernel: nfs_refresh_inode: inode number
mismatch
Oct 8 16:01:27 lrender2 kernel: expected (0x3000007/0x6467c36),
got (0x3000005/0x6467c36)
Oct 8 16:06:27 lrender2 automount[22486]: expired
/usr/local/sgi/wbfa
Oct 8 16:06:27 lrender2 kernel: nfs_refresh_inode: inode number
mismatch
Oct 8 16:06:27 lrender2 kernel: expected (0x3000007/0x6467c36),
got (0x3000005/0x6467c36)
Oct 8 16:11:27 lrender2 automount[22487]: expired
/usr/local/sgi/wbfa
Oct 8 16:11:27 lrender2 kernel: nfs_refresh_inode: inode number
mismatch
Oct 8 16:11:27 lrender2 kernel: expected (0x3000007/0x6467c36),
got (0x3000005/0x6467c36)
Can anyone tell me if this is expected behavior, and if not, if the
problem is in the Irix NFS server implementation or the
Linux client implementation? I don't have the NFS expertise to be able
to discern...

BTW, other clients (SGI Irix and Mac OS X workstations) connected to the
same mount points do NOT exhibit this
behaviour after a server crash.

I checked the changelog at
http://www.fys.uio.no/~trondmy/src/ChangeLog.NFSv3 but didn't see
anything relevant.

Thanks,

Alan Hagge
