My thanks goes out to everybody who took time to answer my simple
question. My original question is:

>A user here have been having occasional problems when he tries
>to save a large autocad file to a server. He is using a diskless
>3/60 running SunOS 4.0.3 and the server is a 3/280 running SunOS 4.0.3.
>The error he gets is:
>NFS write error 70 on host bacchus fh 307 1 80000 d8774db8 f4b0000
>80000 27 ecd 3bc70000.
>FATAL ERROR: Unable to save drawing file
>What the heck does this mean?

Now I know to look in the /usr/include/sys/errno.h file. Error 70 means
"stale file handle".

Most people suggested that the file or directory he is trying to write to has
been deleted or modified. But that is not the case. Most of time, the file
he is writing to is a new file. As far as the stale NFS mount error is concern,
the server has not been rebooted or crashed. As far as I know, the directory
he is writing to (his home directory) has not been dismounted. "df" does
not show any stale mounts (as it usually does). So I'm still at a lost. I
will summarize again if I find out anything
