Showfh (show file handle) for Solaris 2?

Showfh (show file handle) for Solaris 2?

Does anyone have a versions of showfh for Solaris 2. Its not
clear to me how to profitably use the NFS error messages
without something like it.

1. Need help matching stale NFS file handle to a file, Solaris 2.5

I am trying to track down a problem we are having with stale NFS file handles.
I keep getting this message:

Jul 30 00:12:50 unix: NFS write error on host hawaii: Stale NFS file handle.
Jul 30 00:12:50 unix: (file handle: 1d80029 2 a0000 14e24 bc3717d6 a0000 2 78ade889)

I believe it is a file in a user's automounted home directory. It appears that
the directory is unmounting while a program is running (which shouldn't happen
since the program is running from the home directory).

SunOS has a showfh program to attempt to track the file handles but Solaris
doesn't have this program. I don't seem to be able to find any description
of the numbers output in the error message above, so I am not sure what they
refer to.

Any suggestions on how to debug this would be greatly appreciated.
