[Gluster-users] NFS: server localhost error: fileid changed

We are having the same problem (see my post earlier this week). We have 
four server nodes in a replicated cluster, and each is providing 
localhost server facilities. The only comment I have gotten is not to 
use Gluster for a cache drive, but that doesn't really address the 
problem of why this is happening. NFS should be able to exclusively lock 
the files.
