Issue

  • NFS v3 and v4 mounts that use TCP fails/hangs:

[root@rhel_admin tmp]# mount -v  ap01s05nas01.sce05.ap01.arm.com:/net05_homes/net05_homes /tmp/net05_homes/
mount.nfs: timeout set for Tue Jun  9 19:18:48 2020
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4.1,addr=10.xx.yy.10,clientaddr=10.xx.yy.39'
^C

 

[root@rhel_admin /]# mount -v -o vers=3,sec=sys netapp123.netapp.com:/net05_home/net05_home /tmp/net05_home/
mount.nfs: timeout set for Tue Jun 9 17:48:46 2020

mount.nfs: prog 100005, trying vers=3, prot=17
mount.nfs: trying 10.xx.yy.10 prog 100005 vers 3 prot UDP port 635

  • "rpcinfo -p" fails with error that portmapper is timing out :
 
[root@rhel_admin /]# rpcinfo -p 10.xx.yy.10
rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Timed out
 
  • NFS v3 mounts that use UDP are not affected
  • When LIF is migrated to other nodes the TCP mounts work fine.
