Software :: Cannot Get Rid Of Stale NFS File Handle Error

Nov 18, 2008

I've got something showing up in my /mnt directory that I can't figure out how to get rid of. If I try to delete it, I get, "ERROR: Stale NFS file handle". I've tried googling it, but the only solution I can find is "remount and then unmount your NFS server". The trouble is that I don't have any NFS servers - it was a mountpoint for a squashfs file. Trying to remount the squashfile just gives the same error message. My best guess for how it was created is that maybe the file was deleted while mounted. Surely there is a way I can get rid of it? It stuffs up my system by e.g. preventing find from working. I'm running Puppy Linux 4.1.1, although I suspect that is irrelevant.

Slackware :: Stale NFS File Handle Mount Error On Non NFS Boot Partition

Sep 10, 2010

When I run lilo (/sbin/lilo), it messes up my /boot partition. Next time I try to mount it after running lilo, I get an error: "mount: Stale NFS file handle" (I define -t ext2). My /boot partition is ext2, mounted locally, and not nfs. Then I do fsck /dev/sda1, and I get several: Free blocks count wrong for group #0 (7665, counted=5063). Fix<y>? I say yes to all and it works normally afterwards. This happens only after I run lilo. Lilo is installed in MBR.

Here is relevant configuration:
Code:
root@darwin:/home/cabrilo# cat /etc/lilo.conf
append=" vt.default_utf8=0"
boot = /dev/sda

bitmap = /boot/slack.bmp
bmp-colors = 255,0,255,0,255,0
bmp-table = 60,6,1,16
bmp-timer = 65,27,0,255

prompt
timeout = 30
change-rules
reset
vga = normal
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda3
label = Linux
read-only
This is my partition table:

Code:
root@darwin:/home/cabrilo# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

OpenSUSE Network :: NFS Stale File Handle

Jan 20, 2011

I currently have a home network setup so that my main machine shares it's external hard-drive via NFS. This has been working perfectly for months, however I just got a new laptop, installed openSuse 11.3 x64 and set everything up. Now there is two folders on the external network mount that won't let me do anything and always just return Networking: Stale NFS File Handle. The system still works fine under my old openSUSE 11.2 x86 laptop. I have tried unmounting the drive from the laptop, restarting the NFS client, and restarting the NFS server on the main machine. None of these have made a difference.

It is only these two folders that are effected. Everything else works just fine.

General :: SSD Backup - NFS Stale File Handle

Oct 19, 2009

I did a backup of the ssd on my eeepc using the following command from a Linux Mint on a USB key:
dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/media/disk/eeepc_save/SYSTEM/system.bck
(/media/disk in an external USB disk)

I deleted the ext2 partition using GPartEd on live USB key and created it back. I rebooted Linux Mint and restored the filesystem using the opposite command :
dd if=/media/disk/eeepc_save/SYSTEM/system.bck of=/dev/sda1

I mounted /dev/sda1 and when I "ls" the root directory, I get several "NFS stale file handle" messages concerning directories (/dev and other). I tried "e2fsck -y", had a bundle of corrections that resulted in the deletion of the directories. I don't use NFS. I did the same for the user filesystem and had no problem (it's an ext3 partition). The two filesystems are the ones that came with the original Xandros installed on my eeepc and that were mounted with union-fs.

Red Hat :: Inode64 XFS File System And Stale NFS File Handle Message

Jan 12, 2011

I have a 20TB filesystem, xfs formatted. The filesystem has been mounted with the inode64 option, and I now need to NFS export it. NFS doesn't like the inode64 option at all. The NFS clients cannot access any of the directories with inode numbers exceeding the 32bit limit. They get the "Stale NFS file handle" message. I have tried to attach the filesystem to a RHEL5.3 system, and after turning on the no_subtree_check option in /etc/exports on the server, it all works fine. No changes were needed on the clients.

The problem is that I need to get this to work on a RHEL4.4 system. Unfortunately I cannot do any test on that system yet, I then did a quick test on a RHEL4.3 system... and it didn't work. Even using the no_subtree_check option was on any help. I am afraid that this will not work on the RHEL4.4 system either. How to get the inode64 xfs filesystem NFS exported on a 2.6.9 kernel?

Fedora Servers :: FC10 Kernel Panic - Stale NFS File Handle

Mar 20, 2009

A FC10 server hung and had to be power-cycled. I suspect it hung because of an nfs mount timeout.

Now it does not boot. The error is libc.so.6 not found. Kernel panic. Attempting to kill init.

Booting under rescue:

ls: cannot access libc-2.8.so: Stale NFS file handle

Is there a way to reboot to a clean state? There must be some NFS cache file.

I also tried to cp rescueCD:/lib64/libc-2.8.so to the old lib64 dir, but get the same "Stale NFS file handle" message.

Debian :: Keep Getting "Stale NSF File Handle" On A Local File

Oct 18, 2010

I was following the relatively simple instructions here for setting up a LAMP system. After having installed Apache2-related applications, I ran

# a2enmod expires
# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

That worked fine. Then, a little later, after having set up a virtual host for my project website, and after installing PHP, MySQL and setting up a Mail Server with Exim, I rebooted and started getting errors when trying to start Apache:

Starting web server: apache2apache2: Syntax error on line 185 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Could not open configuration file /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/expires.load: Stale NFS file handle

Now it seems as if there is nothing I can do with that file:

# rm -f /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/expires.load
rm: cannot remove '/etc/apache2/mods-enabled/expires.load': Stale NFS file handle
# cd /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/

[code]....

Is there anything I can do to refresh the NFS index so that it finds or removes this file? I'd be happy to just get rid of it. At the moment, I can't start Apache or anything because of it.

Software :: Stale NFS File Error - Cannot Unmount Drive

Jan 10, 2009

I have Puppy installed on an old laptop and one way or another I ended up with a file inside /usr/bin that has the Stale NFS file error. I've tried to look around for a way to fix it but all places I've looked have only been for the situation where it's on a drive you're able to unmount. At least I think they were. I certainly don't know what I'm doing well enough to know for sure. Obviously restarting the computer has been tried as well as attempting to unmount things, but I can't unmount the drive that is running the unmounting.

Ubuntu Networking :: NFS Server Exporting NTFS Partition Giving Stale File Error?

Apr 3, 2010

I'm trying to setup a small network between my old and new laptops to transfer my personal data. They are now linked with a crossover cable and they see each other.The old one has a dual-boot setup with WinXp and Ubuntu 9.10.The new one with Win7 and Ubuntu 9.10.I tried samba but it was very slow even using Windows in both computers: maximum transfer rates were about 1,5 Mib/sec.I tried SSH using ubuntu on both pcs and it is reliable and much faster, 5 Mib/sec. But I wanted more...I installed the NFS server on the old one and exported the NTFS partition where my data resides with sync and ro options.

I installed the NFS client on the new one and i'm able to mount the remote partition.Now, when I transfer my files I get very high speed, more than 10 Mib/sec but after a while I get a "Stale NFS file handler" error but I really didn't touch any file in the old pc and the connection is always up.Searching on the web I found that NFS had some troubles exporting NTFS partitions in the past but should be fully compatible with them since the last versions of ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Fsck And "non-contiguous" / Cant Handle Large File?

Jan 9, 2010

I ran fsck on one of my backup drives, one that is almost full, and I'm not quite sure if that drive is going bad or not.

It's running ext3 and has around 1.6TB used (2.0TB drive).

This is what the output was:

Code:
charles@thor:~$ sudo fsck -rV /dev/sdc1
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.16
[/sbin/fsck.ext3 (1) -- /dev/sdc1] fsck.ext3 -r /dev/sdc1
e2fsck 1.41.9 (22-Aug-2009)

I found some info about how ext3 defrags itself and that it cannot handle large files very well. Source.

Kinda makes me wonder how badly fragmented my 4TB partition is going to be. >.<

Server :: NFS Large File Copies Fail - Error Writing To File: Input/output Error?

Jun 27, 2009

I recently upgraded my file/media server to Fedora 11. After doing so, I can no longer copy large files to the server. The files begin to transfer, but typically after about 1gb of the file has transferred, the transfer stalls and ultimately fails with the message:

"Error writing to file: Input/output error"

I've run out of ideas as to what could cause this problem. I have tried the following:

1. Different NFS versions: NFS3 and NFS4
2. Tried copying the files to different physical drives on the server.
3. Tried copying the files from different physical drives on the client.
4. Tried different rsize and wsize block sizes when mounting the NFS share
5. Tried copying the files via a different protocol. SSH in this case. The file transfers are always successful when I use SSH.

Regardless of what I do, the result is the same. The file transfers always fail after approximately 1gb.

Some other notes.

1. Both the client and the server are running Fedora 11 kernel 2.6.29.5-191.fc11.x86_64

I am out of ideas. Has anyone else experienced something similar?

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Tamed Resolvconf From Putting Stale/old Info In Resolv.conf

Feb 3, 2010

I have resolvconf installed to prevent multiple programs from fighting to update /etc/resolv.conf at the same time an corrupting it.From what I understand resolvconf a package found in the repos is suppose to act as the gatekeeper to /etc/resolv.conf and all programs must go thru it to update resolv.conf. Hence /etc/resolv.conf is written in a orderly manner.

from time to time though something goes awry and resolvconf writes old, wrong stale into /etc/resolv.conf, for a connection that may be down or no longer exists along with the correct info for the current connection.Usually i would fix this by uninstalling and reinstalling the resolvconf package.I was tired of this so i went digging around in

/etc/resolvconf and found the subdirectory
/etc/resolvconf/run/interface

This is where it looks like resolvconf caches interface info that goes into

/etc/resolv.conf

I think what happens is resolvconf is suppose to clean this up in an orderly way but sometimes old interface files may be left here.So for instance in mine were the files eth0 and wlan0.with dns info for each stored in the relative file. I no longer have an eth0 only a wlan0 so resolvconf was still pulling info from both

/etc/resolvconf/run/interface/wlan0 and /etc/resolvconf/run/interface/eth0

with the result of an incorrect dns info in /etc/resolv.conf To make a long story short I just deleted /etc/resolvconf/run/interface/eth0 and was good to go. So if you are using resolvconf and run into this problem you may use this work around.

Programming :: PHP Auto Removes Stale Sessions On It's Own But Doesn't Remove From MYSQL Table

Aug 24, 2010

I know PHP auto removes stale sessions on it's own, but that doesn't remove them from the MYSQL table. So I was gonna make a cron script that ran once every hour that removed any MYSQL shopping cart item from the table if the original session_id that created it does not exist anymore.

From my understanding a session_id is an "actual" file located somewhere on the harddisk (is it not? correct me if I'm wrong), so I was going to do a simple check for each item in the shopping cart to check for it's original session file, if it didn't exist on the harddisk, then simply remove it from the mysql table.
