Re: Stale NFS handles on 2.4.2

I have my home directory mounted on one computer from another. I
rebooted the server and now the client is saying Stale NFS file handle
anytime something goes to read my home directory. It has been this
way for about a day. Shouldn't any caches expire by now?

Both server and client are running 2.4.2.

I'ved tried `mount /home -o remount`, and reading lots of other
directories to flush out that entry if it was in cache without any

I was hopping to avoid unmounting, as I would have to shut about
everything down to do that.
