Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

We have a NFS server (running RHEL4) to support a large number of client workstations (running RHEL4). The clients are all identical (in term of hardware, OS, system configuration and etc), and have /usr/local mounted from the NFS server. /etc/fstab is configured identically on all clients as such:
masterfs:/usr/local /usr/local nfs defaults 0 0
For some reason, one client's /usr/local is out of sync with the rest of clients (both files and the time stamps). For example:
$ ls -all /usr/local/lcls/tools/edm/display/bpms
-rw-rw-r-- 1 softegr lcls 31991 Jan 16 16:27 bpm_stripline_diagnostic.edl
-rw-rw-r-- 1 softegr lcls 6907 Jan 16 16:27 bpm_stripline_sim.edl
-rw-rw-r-- 1 iocegr lcls 88455 Jan 30 09:49 bpm_values_table.edl
drwxrwxr-x 2 softegr lcls 4096 Jan 30 09:49 CVS
What is going on here? This is causing us a lot of problems. I would certainly expect that /usr/local should be transparent and in sync on all clients. But this dir on one client is clearly out of sync for quite long and doesn't know how to sync back with the rest automatically. I have to reboot the client to clear the problem when that happens.
Is there anyway to prevent this happen? Any help is greatly appreciated.
