Symptoms

 NFS (NFSv3 or NFSv2) mounts intermittently fail from Solaris clients with an SGI nfs server.  When customer tries to do the mount via: mount SGI:/dir dir  an error message of "not a directory" is returned.


The customer said that they didn't have this problem prior to upgrading their software on the SGI box to IRIX 6.0.1.
