A customer of mine is running version 4.23 on a 12 node network. Recently I
have been having a problem doing an ls -l on one of the nodes from any other
node. The ls command runs very slowly, and then only displays a few
directories. However, if I do a listing from the “bad” node itself,
everything shows up just fine.
I also cannot always copy a file FROM the bad node. If I try to cp a file
from this node to another node, cp reports “no route to host”, even though I
can see all the other nodes and their directories from the bad node. I can
however copy files TO the bad node.
Is this a network issue? Bad network card and/or cable? I’ve never seen
this behavior before - does anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks in advance -
