[OT - NFS] Re: Converting BDB to FSFS on NFS & linux

Hi Greg,

Since this will quickly degenerate into an NFS mail perhaps it should be off list? Then again, other might encounter the same
problem so I just put an [OT] warning in.

The NFS server is running Slackware 10 (their latest June release) with a 2.6.7 kernel. It is compiled with all the NFS options
turned on:

#
# Network File Systems
#
CONFIG_NFS_FS=y
CONFIG_NFS_V3=y
CONFIG_NFS_V4=y
CONFIG_NFS_DIRECTIO=y
CONFIG_NFSD=y
CONFIG_NFSD_V3=y
CONFIG_NFSD_V4=y
CONFIG_NFSD_TCP=y
CONFIG_LOCKD=y
CONFIG_LOCKD_V4=y
CONFIG_EXPORTFS=y
CONFIG_SUNRPC=y
CONFIG_SUNRPC_GSS=y
CONFIG_RPCSEC_GSS_KRB5=y
CONFIG_SMB_FS=y
CONFIG_SMB_NLS_DEFAULT=y
CONFIG_SMB_NLS_REMOTE="cp437"
CONFIG_CIFS=y
CONFIG_CIFS_STATS=y

And it is exported using the command:
/mnt/hd/ 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0(sync,rw,no_root_squash)

The native file system is XFS.

My client is another Slackware 10 + kernel 2.6.7 system compiled with
#
# Network File Systems
#
CONFIG_NFS_FS=y
CONFIG_NFS_V3=y
# CONFIG_NFS_V4 is not set
# CONFIG_NFS_DIRECTIO is not set
CONFIG_NFSD=y
CONFIG_NFSD_V3=y
# CONFIG_NFSD_V4 is not set
# CONFIG_NFSD_TCP is not set
# CONFIG_ROOT_NFS is not set
CONFIG_LOCKD=y
CONFIG_LOCKD_V4=y
CONFIG_EXPORTFS=y
CONFIG_SUNRPC=y
# CONFIG_RPCSEC_GSS_KRB5 is not set
CONFIG_SMB_FS=y

And as I said, mounted with
192.168.101.12:/mnt/hd/home/svn /data/svn-nfs-repos nfs
user,nfsvers=3,rsize=8192,timeo=14,tcp,hard,lock,intr,wsize=8192,noauto,posix 0 0

Do you have any suggestions? I assume I am doing something obviously wrong but I am new to this whole NFS thing.

Thanks,
Chris

It is whispered that Greg Hudson was heard, on or about 08/18/04 00:30 to say:
>>svnadmin load /data/svn-nfs-repos/go-dev < go-dev.dmp
>>svn: Error opening db lockfile
>>svn: Can't get shared lock on file '/data/svn-nfs-repos/go-dev/locks/db.lock': No locks available
