Hi...
Sparc-10 client and Sparc-20 server, both running Solaris 2.4. Periodically we see the folowing errors scrolling across openWindows on the NFS client....

Apr  6 10:09:30 nfs-client unix: NFS write error on host nfs-server: Permission denied.
Apr  6 10:09:30 nfs-client unix: (file handle: 8000f2 2 a0000 314b 53788dd4 a0000 2 71ef0eed)

There is nothing unusual happening when this occurs. And nobody complains that they do not have access. The directories where files get read from and written to, have read and write acces to the world. Now to the question.....
Is there a way, using the file handle generated by the error, to work out which file is being written, and by which  user or process.
regards

Hello,

    if you want see which file is accessed by which process or
user try to download & install `lsof' utility.
You may find it via anonymous ftp to vic.cc.purdue.edu in:

        pub/tools/unix/lsof/

The utility provides for very customizable view of open files
and is distributed with some scripts which you can find very
useful for other purposes.

Try to run the `lsof' as:

$> lsof -N

to see all open NFS files and directories

Hope this helps

Hi...
I haven't tried it yet, but have installed it on test bed Sparc and we are pleased with what lsof can do. Also as this is going to be so useful in other areas aswell, I'm giving you an "A"
Thanks very much
