Description help 1999-11-04 20:47:39 UTC
Under some circumstances, the following message goes to

kernel: svc: unknown version (3)

Yet, nothing seems to be wrong.

This is also true under 6.0.

Comment 1 help 1999-11-04 21:03:59 UTC
This message repeats every 10 minutes.
It is likely NFS related.

Comment 2 Chris Siebenmann 1999-11-06 09:48:59 UTC
I believe that this message is from someone trying to talk to the
NFS server with NFS v3 protocol. If the server used to run Redhat
6.0, a system may have had 6.0's mountd accept a NFS v3 mount
request (although the kernel couldn't server NFS v3); in 6.1 the
/etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs script is careful to start mountd with the
right option to tell it not to do this.
