NetApp NFS server running Ontap 9.2 incorrectly responds to LOCKU with NFS4ERR_BAD_SEQID (10026) and 'bad sequence-id' errors seen in messages file on Linux NFS client

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We upgraded our NetApp filer to Ontap 9.2 and are now seeing a lot of bad sequence-id error on an unconfirmed sequence messages. A tcpdump shows LOCKU can get a response of NFS4ERR_BAD_SEQID (10026) and after that, RELEASE_LOCKOWNER gets a response of NFS4ERR_LOCKS_HELD (10037).
