Re: ls -lrt command not working in root filesystem

Hi,


No "reboot".

Steven E. Protter say,

Probably ls -al / is listing a stale nfs mount.

Check your nfs mounts and possibly stop/start the services or automounter and the problem should go away. There may of course be a problem on the actual NFS server.

Re: ls -lrt command not working in root filesystem

Hi rariasn ,
there is no nfs mount on this server.
I will check the automounter daemon .

Re: ls -lrt command not working in root filesystem

Did you check the syslog.log file for any errors? Usually a hang on a 'ls' means the system is waiting for I/O from a device, i.e NFS mount, disk, etc...

Re: ls -lrt command not working in root filesystem

Hi,
Kindly verify the /etc/fstab file if any remote drives that connect to via Samba, some reason these shares do not mount automatically on boot.If is not mounted mount all the drivs using,
#mount -a

Re: ls -lrt command not working in root filesystem

Hello Chindi..

It might be due to NFS file systems..

Try:
# bdf -l

lower case L, to list local file sys. If this runs fine, then issue is because of NFS mounted file sys.

Hi Guys,

I took a reboot , and nw d problem is solved.
WE take Business copy on it and may b it was waiting for some I/O's as rightly pointed out by Mr. Robert
