I’m running CentOS 6.5 as NFS server (v3 and v4) and exporting Ext4 and XFS filesystem.

After many months that all works fine today the server crash:

  • That page lists the workaround if you log in, but no “resolution” as yet. Although there are internal Bugzilla ID’s for both 5 and 6

    echo 0 >/proc/sys/fs/leases-enable

    Thanks, I have found more information about this:

    “To work around this issue, use NFSv3 instead of NFSv4. Alternatively, turn off support for leases by writing 0 to /proc/sys/fs/leases-enable
    (ideally on boot, before the nfs server is started). This change prevents NFSv4 delegations from being given out, restore correctness at the expense of some performance.”

    from https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html/5.6_Technical_Notes/Known_Issues-kernel.html

    I will evaluate if use NFS3 only or apply the trick.


  • Allesio,

    Are these VM’s — did you move the /VM files/ respectively to backup location named as per VM? e.g.:
    /CORE business Server

    Because it looks like your PowerEdge system chocked and you may have to:

    A: get that back online, fire up the systems.. or B: replace C: restor/replace

    The errors are pretty obvious to me at first pass — and if I was there I could tell in 5 minutes what is ‘probably’ wrong.. but that’s my first pass at this.

    I hope you had some kind of failover/redundancy with the “appliance”

  • Hi Jeffrey,

    this PowerEdge has a replica of the data on another server.

    Do you believe it is a hardware problem and not software?

    What makes you think that?
