10.3: NFS-located home folders may cause locking problems
Authored by: alblue on Nov 26, '03 07:00:31PM

The solution to this problem can be easily achieved by editing the /etc/hostconfig file. Simply find the line that says:

NFSLOCKS=-AUTOMATIC-

and change it to

NFSLOCKS=-NO-

Then restart the computer, and it will not attempt to lock files.

I have also found other unrelated problems with NFS if the client computer cannot resolve the group/uid on the client computers.
