ok, i have a laptop (planet) that mounts it's /home off of a server
(inle) with these options: rw,bg,intr. the following scenario has an
o put planet to sleep.
o shut down inle
o wait several days
o bring inle up
o wake planet (big alarm clock, natch)
at this point /home on planet is mounted but returns errors. if i log
out and then log in as root umount and mount /home (/home is listed as
inle:/home in the fstab) and then log back in then /home is happy
however, in that scenario i'm just as well shutting the laptop down
if i just put planet to sleep w/o shutting down inle and then wake planet
back up it's fine (though i haven't done it as long).
why does /home come up unusable - does it deal with rpc.mountd on inle?
what can i do to tweak nfs (server|client) to do what i want?
