when using nfsd - kernel BUG in 3.12.67-60.64.18-default

looks like there’s a crash bug in the most recent kernel. Most Probably related to NFS.

rolling back to 3.12.62-60.64.8-default fixed the problem, users are grumpy now though.

So if you use NFS be aware.

Unfortunately I don’t know if SuSE is already aware of this bug - I couldn’t find its bugzilla and SRs are scarce…

Your SUSE Forums Team

I’ve asked contacts within SUSE to see what they think about this; I’ll
let you know if they confirm either way.

In the meantime, could you share some details on your version/patch of
SLES, what youa re doing with NFS in particular (provide the /etc/exports
or /etc/fstab file contents perhaps), etc.?

Good luck.

Could you open a Service Request (SR) and cite Bug# 984194?

Are you able to get a core dump for this?

Apparently you are not the first to see a core that may be related, and
the bug above MAY have the same root cause, but it is still under
investigation. Since it is a kernel bug, it is probably best to work
directly with SUSE on getting a fix for you.

Good luck.

Ignore me; unless I’m very mistaken, this is your bug report already. I
was thrown off since it is not very new.

If you have some details of your environment that you can share to try to
reproduce this, I have a SLES 12 SP1 box with the same kernel version
where I could do some NFS testing.

Good luck.
