APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • AIX NFSv4 client does not show replica server information
    when the server is configured to use nfsroot (exname).
    In this case the filesystem root (as seen by the client)
    will not match what is actually exported. This causes
    the client to disregard the replica server information.
    The mount will work, but the "nfs4cl showfs" command will
    not show the alternate servers.
    

Local fix

  • Do not use nfsroot/exname configuration with replicas.
    

Problem summary

  • AIX NFS4 CLIENT DOES NOT PROCESS REPLICAS WITH NFSROOT CONFIG
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fix is to check for fs_root string is present in
    rootpath" versus "if fs_root matches rootpath"
    

Temporary fix
