Not a very detailed description of the
software.

sizer -v

> [...] having following error.

Where are you seeing these messages?

Who is 192.168.1.12?

> Please provide the appropriate solution.

Define "appropriate". In my limited
experience, rebooting usually clears a stale
NFS handle.

Re: NFS SERVER: stale file handle error

DS25 is File Server and Error message reported in dxconsole of server is :-

NFS SERVER: stale file handle fs( 2757, 363009) file 14557 gen 33025

RFS3_READ; client address = 192.168.1.12, error 22"

Note :-
192.168.1.12 is IP Address of our Client on same server.

Re: NFS SERVER: stale file handle error

Kindly provide the guidance to resolve this problem.

Whether i should reboot client only or to both server as well as client.

You don't answer _my_ questions:

I'd probably start with the NFS server, and
then move along to the client.
