NFSv3 client may ignore SM_NOTIFY from NFS server (Doc ID 2186576.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 1/13 U11 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

NFS client doesn't reclaim file locks although it receives SM_NOTIFY from the NFS server.

When NFSv3 client has files locked over NFS share and receives SM_NOTIFY, the client neglects SM_NOTIFY and the lock recovery doesn't happen. If we examine the snoop data, we can see STATMON2 is sent and acknowledged but no further lock reclamation packets are exchanged.
