Justin, by the way, what's the underlying filesystem on the server?

I've seen this error on 2 machines already (both running 2.6.29.x x86-64),
and in both cases the filesystem on the server was xfs. May this be
related somehow to ?
That one is different, but also about xfs and nfs. I'm trying to
reproduce the problem on different filesystem...


Hello, I am also running XFS on 2.6.29.x x86-64.

For me, the error happened when I was running an XFSDUMP from a client (and dumping) the stream over NFS to the XFS server/filesystem. This is typically when the error occurs or during heavy I/O.
