    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
