NFS: server ISC, client Solaris

NFS: server ISC, client Solaris

Post by Hans Werner Stru » Thu, 05 Jan 1995 22:48:14



When an Sun Solaris 2.x client does an NFS mount from an ISC (Interactive)
Unix 2.2 server, on the server the message appears:
 lockd: local_granted(): lock 0x410240 denied, ~wait_q.
On the client, there is no message, and the mount is performed.
Looking at the network packets with "snoop" shows that locking is requested
by the Sun client but denied by the ISC server.
Is this an error of the ISC /etc/lockd, or is something configured inappro-
priately? Can it be circumvented?
(For SunOS 4.1.x clients, the warning does not occur, since they do not
request locking. On the other hand, for Solaris 2.x clients with unpatched
SunOS 4.1.x servers, the client issued the message "No network locking on...".
This does not appear here.)

Try cutting your packet sizes way down.  

NFS on Interactive really sucks big time, it's almost unuseable.
