A few days ago I posted a query about the abovementioned message:

>> All of a sudden (probably after some NFS server died), I started to get
>> these messages on my SS1+ console: [The second message was slightly
>> different but I don't have any hardcopy. I'm sure about the "cnvt"].
>> fcntl: stale NFS handle
>> rpc.lockd: can not do cnvt
>> [ deleted...]

I apologize for not RTFM'ing - somewhere there is a reference to the
/etc/sm* files.

Here is the summary of responses received so far. Thanks to everybody who

1. Sun has a new patch, 100075-08, for the rpc.lockd problems.
   (get -07 or higher).

2. Try killing your statd & lockd, then clean out /etc/sm*, then restart

3. Usually the only way to get out is restart rpc.lockd AND
   rpc.statd and sometimes even the application that's doing the locking.
