Hi Bruce, thanks for the reply :)
For the moment the two nfs share's content are the same. I use scp to
copy them. It's static so i did it just once.
To resolve that NFS file handle error, i mounted the share with a static
fsid for each client. Unfortunately, even with a FSID, i still have an
error during the failover while copying from the NFS share to client's
cp: reading `/usr/local/genome/1Go.txt': Input/output error
cp: reading `/usr/local/genome/1Go.tyt': Input/output error
cp: cannot stat `/usr/local/genome/1Go.tzt': Permission denied
What should I try next?
