Solaris Cluster Configuration error during SUNW.nfs creation leads to nfsd daemon failure (NFS method start and stop timeout)

(Doc ID 1904770.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 06, 2017

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.2 to 4.3 [Release 3.2 to 4.3]
Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition - Version 3.2 to 4.3 [Release 3.2 to 4.3]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)


During the activation of a new HA-NFS Solaris Cluster resource, the nfsd daemon has been shut down during 10 minutes causing the outage of the other resources SUNW.nfs running on this node.



A new NFS resource is created :


By default the START_TIMEOUT and STOP_TIMEOUT properties values are set to 5 minutes (300 seconds) so if there are some other SUNW.nfs resources running on the same node when nfsd daemon is stopped by the NFS methods these resources were unavailable during 10 minutes causing a production outage.
