NFS write error on host : Stale NFS file handle

SmilieHi all

When i see in the /var/adm/messages, i saw the following error
unix: NFS write error on host : Stale NFS file handle.
unix: (file handle: 45ca415 3e7 a0000 2c7f6 3ebfc25f a0000 2 3e49)

It is using sunOS 5.7. Is anybody know what is this error?
Is is related to any network issue?
Any impact to the system?
Thanks in advance

This type of error message is seen when a file or directory that was opened by an NFS client is removed, renamed, or replaced.

a) Unmount and remount the file system, may need to use the -O (overlay option) of mount.
b) Run: /etc/init.d/nfs.client stop; /etc/init.d/nfs.client start

If nothing works then reboot the client

Depends, this stale file hander normally appears when the server whom you are mounting the filesystem resource from is no longer available or something in the network is blocking.

Or

In a cluster during failover of NFS resource the major & minor numbers on the secondary server taking over is different from that of the primary then it's a system configuration problem
