Random 'Input/output error' with nfs


I try to setup a diskless client and have severe problems mounting partitions over NFS - it gives an 'Input/output error' on different files. The errors persists even if i restart all nfs services (lockd,rpc.nfsd, rpc.mountd) or even if I reboot the server PC. On top of all they happen on different files after every reboot of the diskless client.

I also had messages like 'Stale file handle', for some files, however those come if I try to mount same file system on a third machine.

I read whatever I found on that, but it seems there is no definite response. Looks like problem is in the server machine kernel nfsd module, but I am not sure.

I use linux 2.4.26 with nfsd compiled as a module on the server machine and same kernel with nfs client built-in for diskless stations. Exported fs on the server is ext2. There is nothing unusual in the log files.

One more point: I had few diskless computers an year ago and they worked well. I think I had kernel 2.4.18 at that time if I remember well.

Any help appreciated, George.
