NFS write failed for server.....error 11 (RPC: Server can't decode arguments)

Hello!

I have a Linux nfs server (called server100 below) with a export nfs. My problem is that the Solaris client (called client100 below) doesn't seems to like it. In the Solaris syslog I got following messages (and after a while the solaris client behave liked its hanged/to buzy). Also see the mount directive below. What is the recomended directives on a solaris box?

ay 2 05:31:42 client100 nfs: [ID 527099 kern.notice] NFS write error on host server100: error 11.
May 2 05:31:42 client100 nfs: [ID 702911 kern.notice] (file handle: 1000006 fe0000 2000000 77000000 6a000000 20000000 6a000000 2000000 1c000000)
May 2 05:31:43 client100 nfs: [ID 664466 kern.notice] NFS write failed for server server100: error 11 (RPC: Server can't decode arguments)
May 2 05:31:43 client100 nfs: [ID 972732 kern.notice] NFS write error on host server100: I/O error.
May 2 05:31:43 client100 nfs: [ID 702911 kern.notice] (file handle: 1000006 fe0000 2000000 77000000 6a000000 20000000 6a000000 2000000 1c000000)



The mount directive on the client is as follows:


root@client100 # cat /etc/vfstab | grep share
server100:/share - /mnt10 nfs - yes bg,intr,rsize=32768
root@client100 #

from your client Can you do a touch apple inside the shared out folder

touch apple

it will create a file called apple which is zero byte. If it cannot even create a zero byte file then you need to review your export permissions from server side

What version of Solaris are you using ?

It could be a NFS version 2 thing. Try removing the rsize option from your vfstab, you don't need to have it in there.

rsize=32768 is default for NFSv3 and v4
rsize=8192 is default for NFSv2

Have you tried to mount it manually ?

another possibility is server side filesystem full
