Today, I found strange messages on one Solaris 10 SPARC host:
Apr 10 05:38:30 nfsclient nfs: [ID 626546 kern.notice] NFS write error on host nfsserver: Stale NFS file handle. Apr 10 05:38:30 nfsclient nfs: [ID 702911 kern.notice] (file handle: 90ebba38 9c597108 a00c5 0 fba3300 a0300 0 1d000000)
The task is clear: find the file represented by the file handler
90ebba38 9c597108 a00c5 0 fba3300 a0300 0 1d000000 on the Solaris NFS server (also SPARC).
I cannot find any hint where to start. Some guidelines I found on internet were about the UFS and described file handles with different formats. Also
/etc/mnttab does not contain any identification I could match. So it’s time to analyze myself.
