Abstract

OSP-COMM-OTHER-INCORROUT NFS CPFA0A9 ON EMPTY DIRECTORY

Error Description

NFS between two IBM i partitions.                              
EXPORT done on NFS server. There are no files in the exported  
directory.                                                      
Mount done to NFS server.                                      
WRKLNK from client to the mount over directory generates        
CPFA0A9.                                                        
If a file is placed in the exported directory, WRKLNK from the  
mount over directory generates no message and file is shown.    

Problem Summary

When viewing an NFSv3 (Network File System version 3) mounted  
directory that does not contain any objects with WRKLNK        
DSPOPT(*ALL), the command fails with MSGCPFA0A9 (Object not    
found.)                                                        

Problem Conclusion

The WRKLNK DSPOPT(*ALL) view requires the NFS client to gather  
attribute information for the directory entries it returns.  In
some cases, the client's attempt to gather that information from
the server fails.  Those entries are usually removed from the  
directory listing.  An internal error value may not be reset if
attributes cannot be obtained for the last directory entry      
returned by the server.                                        
                                                               
This PTF corrects the NFS client behavior so the internal error
is not returned to the user.
