why does changing nfs.enable-ino32 on a live Gluster NFS volume cause problems with clients?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • After enabling volume option nfs.enable-ino32 on with the command on Red Hat Storage Server side on a live volume causes client side to observe Stale File Handles
# gluster volume set <volname> nfs.enable-ino32 on 
  • Volume accepts setting, but several client receives "Stale NFS handle" As a result the application cannot start and a remount is necessary to get things back to normal.

  • Ideally this setting should be applied live without errors allowing no remounts on the client side
