fh3tovp error

We are getting fh3tovp: bad length errors on our DS-25 server. We are running TRU64 5.1.b. Can anyone tell me what this is and what to do to fix it. Thanks

Re: fh3tovp error

Google finds suggestions that it's NFS-related:

fh3tovp: bad length: n
Explanation: A client sent a bad file handle to the server.

I didn't see any clues as to what to do
about it.

Re: fh3tovp error

You get that message from the NFS server when it receives an NFS v3 file handle with a bad value in the length field. Are you seeing lots of these errors or are they just happening occasionally? Are you having any other NFS problems? It looks like the server will try to recover from the error, so I don't think you have to do anything from the NFS perspective to try to fix this. The most likely cause would be some sort of network problem, so I'd check your network for problems.
