We've got a problem with PC-NFS and/or Solaris 2's NFS server in the following
PC NFS-mounts a disk on a Solaris 2.3 box containing source code.
C Compiler sits on another NFS-mounted disk
When the source code is compiled (takes a few hours), sometimes files are
corrupted (the compiler barfs because it gets "invalid library files" etc.) -
for instance, an extra 2k of zero bytes are inserted into a file.
It works fine when the source code is on the PC's local disk.
It occurs using PC-NFS versions 4.0, 5.0c and 5.1a
The Solaris machines we've tried are running :
2.3 / 101318-54
2.3 / 101318-69
2.3 / 101318-70
2.4 / 101945-27
Sun are attempting to help us find a workaround (there is some sort of related
bug that is only due to be fixed in Solaris 2.5), but i thought i'd ask here
too to see if anybody else has seen this (and dealt with it) before.
