I am not sure if this is related, but I recently upgraded my server from 10.04 to 12.04LTS. Any large files on the server e.g. ISO files showed incorrect file sizes when opened in Nautilus. These large files were unusable from the clients (also running 12.04), although they were fine on the server. It is an old 32bit server - Althon processor only used for backups and serving audio, video etc.

Solved the problem by moving to NFSv4. Changed exports file on server to:-

/nfs/srv 192.168.xx.0/24(rw,fsid=0,insecure,no_subtree_check,async)

and the fstab on the clients to:-

192.168.xx.x:/ /nfs/srv nfs4 _netdev,auto 0 0

Only been running with this setup for a couple of days, but so far, so good.

Apologies if this is unrelated to this bug. Wasn't what to do with this information as is possibly of use to others out there?
