Description Wendy Cheng 2007-02-20 15:10:27 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #229345 +++

Description of problem:
GFS(s) expects NFS fh_type and fh_len would have the same value. 
This is apparently not correct. One obvious symptom is that 
it will fail NFS V2 (which uses fixed fh_len for all requests) 
mount command. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Depending on NFS request types - for v2 mount command, it fails
each time and every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
Mount GFS(s) partitions on NFS clients using NFS v2 protocol. 

Actual results:
The command fails with ESTALE error.

Expected results:
Mount succeeds. 

Additional info:
Patch has submitted to cluster-devel list.
