Information in this document applies to any platform.
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.
