NFS Copy error

Hi there,


After mounting an NFS over Datadomain in my HPUX, I'm getting this error when trying to copy files into the mount folder:

cp: bad copy to /data/test.tar: write: Unknown error

my mount options with nfsstat -m:

Flags: vers=3,proto=tcp,auth=unix,hard,nointr,llock,link,symlink,devs,forcedirectio,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,retrans=5
All: srtt= 0 ( 0ms), dev=48000 (240000ms), cur=12000 (240000ms)

Thank you for your help.

Re: NFS Copy error

Is it only when you use the cp command that you cannot create files in the mounted filesystem or does any attempt to create a new file fail?  How about something as simple as:

# touch /data/testfile

I suggest collecting a nettl trace of the failing operations and look at the trace to see exactly what errors the NFS server is returning.
