In following Exalogic releases with NFSv4 shares on Client Linux Compute Nodes mounted on ZFS Storage appliance, intermittent file lock issues are observed when accessing files on NFSv4 shares.
- Exalogic Physical Releases: 22.214.171.124.1, 126.96.36.199.2, 188.8.131.52.3, 184.108.40.206.1, 220.127.116.11.2
- Exalogic Virtual Releases: 2.0.1.X, 2.0.4.X
This issue is observed even with all the following recommendations in place:
- IPMP Failback disabled
- NFSv4 delegation disabled on Storage Appliance
- Working NIS configuration
- Working NTP settings
Due to this, any application process or WebLogic process startup on NFSv4 file system fails with unable to obtain lock exception. Below is a snippet of the WebLogic server log showing failed startup because of file lock issue.
