ls -la commands gives Input/Output error on NFS share

I have configured NFS server on RHEL 5.1 and mounted the share on RHEL 3 U4 Clients. When I can ls command on any directory on NFS share, it list me without any errors.However when I give command ls -la it give me the Input/Output error but list the contents.

localhost>ls -la
ls: .bash_history: Input/output error
ls: .: Input/output error
ls: .Xauthority: Input/output error
ls: .viminfo: Input/output error
ls: .profile: Input/output error
total 36
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 0 Dec 2 13:34 ..

I did lot of google and found that this issue can cauz due to the diff NFS version on the client, is this the real cauz of this issue?

Thanks,

Re: ls -la commands gives Input/Output error on NFS share

Hi,

I don't think it can be version issue.

Though we used to make linux server as nfs client & aix server as NFS server. we never face any problem li this.

rechcek the entries in nfs server
try to mount the exported fs in any other client machine.

Identiy where the problem is ? in client or server ?

Hi Prasu,

I got the error only with RHEL 3 U4 clients, when I tried making Fedora 9, RHEL 4 U4 & RHEL 5 client,I dont get any Input/Output error.

Thanks,
