NFS locks not working on csfs file server

25.04.2012 - 16:00 - 26.04.2012 - 08:30

25.4 at somewhere around 16:00 csfs NFS server stopped responding to NFS lock requests. The lockd kernel process in the server appears to be (somewhat ironically) deadlocked. Since there is no way to fix this without rebooting the NFS server. The server will be rebooted at 08:30 thursday morning, when there are IT staff people present at the department.'

Until then all processes which try to acquire NFS file locks on NFS clients will hang. This includes firefox and thunderbird.
