Good Morning build 32

The installation was delayed slightly by Chinese New Year but this morning my Sun Ray was connected to build 32 (Paul suggested that I make some joke about the New year being the year of the Chicken but us not being to scared to run the latest build on our main desktop servers but that is not really my kind of humour):

: estale.eu FSS 1 $; uname -a
SunOS estale 5.11 snv_32 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire
: estale.eu FSS 2 $;

One odd thing that hit me was while copying a file I got this message:

file temporarily unavailable on the server, retrying...

Which is odd as the server has not been upgraded and we don't use off line storage, just good old ufs. Happened three time for the same file and now works perfectly.

Isn't it the year of the Dog? Or did I just miss the joke? :) That "unavailable" message is generally printed by an NFS client, on receipt of a particular protocol "error" from the server (JUKEBOX for NFSv3 mounts, DELAY for NFSv4 mounts). There are two possibilties: 1. The server is using HSM and the file requested needs to be recovered before it can be accessed. 2. The server has issued an NFSv4 delegation on this file to a different client. That delegation must be recalled before \*this\* client may access the file. Note that this can still occur even if this client is mounting via NFSv3 (which doesn't know about delegations) since it will receive the JUKEBOX error - introduced for HSM - from the NFSv4 delegating server. It's a bug (5050964) that this msg is printed on the client without allowing a little time for the condition to clear, and also that the message is, in general, far too terse to be of any use.

Yup, this new year is year of the Dog :)

So the punchline could also be that year of the Chicken is passing so you are all brave enough to try a new build ;)

Happy Chinese New Year!

Sorry Chris, this just shows you, that you should never listen and believe every thing a lab manager say..
