Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • NFSv4
  • Solaris

Issue

  • In a clean location, a user from a Solaris client using NFSv4 (any minor version) tries to create a file or directory
  • The client reports file exists even though no such file or directory previously existed
  • Listing the contents of the parent directory reveals that the file or directory was in fact created
  • Packet trace analysis of this interaction reveals NFS4ERR_BAD_STATEID returned on the initial CREATE call, with a second CREATE call receiving an NFS4ERR_EXIST response
