APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Errors for F_GETLK (lock test) calls are not
    propagated back to the caller when issued over an NFSv4
    mounted filesystem on AIX.
    This applies only to AIX NFSv4 clients. AIX NFSv3 clients
    work fine.
    

Local fix

  • None.
    Since problem is specific to NFSv4, an option would be
    to use NFSv3 mounts instead.
    

Problem summary

  • Errors fot lock test calls are not propagated back to the
    caller when issued over an NFSv4 mounted filesystem on AIX.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Ensure that error received from the server is passed back to
    the caller in all cases, after mapping it to appropriate Unix
    error codes.
    

Temporary fix
