HI, Using Suse with kernel version 2.6.16. strangely enough, if i mount the nfs share in a different path, then it works fine. I tried restarting all related services on both client and the server, system reboot as well, changed files as well.. nuthing fixes in this particular directory definately seems like some *voodoo* factor associated with a previous mount/umount session to the same path on the client :| how to get rid of that :( since directory is being used in all the code everywhere, i'd rather fix access through it then create another mount. thanks regards Kami On 12/20/06, Darren Hoch <darren.hoch at litemail.org> wrote: > > Kamran, > > This is purely NFS and not DRBD.
