Files being created with weird dates on nfs share.

Solution In Progress - Updated -

Issue

  • We are seeing files that are generated with 0 bytes and some weird dates on it. These reside in a directory which are NFS mounted from one of the database server,Some of the files are dated from distant past and some are from distant future.

  • We believe this is the issue with NFS. These files are the oracle backup files and are failing on a regular basis with such weird behavior on them.The file-names are unique and hence its not supposed to coincide with any existing one. Attached is the log file and the first file is the example of the weird behavior.
