Environment


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1

Situation

During NFSv4 client writes, those NFS transfers are failing with errno 88 (ENOTSOCK) errors.

If the NFSv4 client sends a request before connecting, or the old connection was broken/closed, ENOTSOCK will be returned, but the rpc client can't deal with ENOTSOCK and the write will fail.

Resolution

A patch to translate ENOTSOCK to ENOTCONN was included in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP1 kernel update 2.6.32.54-0.3.1.
