We have a network of SUN workstations running Solaris 7.
We have a recurrent problem, and I was wondering if anyone had
suggestions on how to fix it.
Problem description: NFS exhibits sporadic black-outs that last several
minutes and typically occur several times a day. These black-outs are
always preceded by a message "AUTHDES_VALIDATE: VERIFIER MISMATCH".
Apr 3 14:48:27 chateauneuf unix: NOTICE: authdes_validate: verifier
Apr 3 14:51:27 chateauneuf unix: NFS server rhone not responding still
Apr 3 14:51:27 chateauneuf unix: NOTICE: authdes_validate: verifier
Apr 3 14:54:27 chateauneuf last message repeated 1 time
Apr 3 14:57:27 chateauneuf unix: NFS server rhone ok
We have discarded plausible hypotheses such as:
a) server overload
b) network congestion.
Any hint or help would be immensely appreciated !
