Well don't run like this. Have PVFS have NFS,  don't mix them like that your asking for pain, my 2 cents.

I get this error all the time also, you have to disable a large portion of the caching that NFS does to make sure that all MPI-IO clients get true data on the file they are all trying to access.  To make this work check in your /etc/fstab and see if you have the 'noac'  option.  This is attribute caching, this must be disabled.

On that note PVFS2 is made for doing MPI-IO to multiple hosts (thus no need for NFS)  because it was made with MPI-IO in mind it should work out the box.

Hi,

I'm trying to run my program in my environment and some problems are
happening. My environment is based on PVFS2 over NFS (PVFS is mounted
over NFS partition), OpenMPI and Ubuntu. My program uses MPI-IO and
BZ2 development libraries. When I tried to run, a message appears:

File locking failed in ADIOI_Set_lock. If the file system is NFS, you
need to use NFS version 3, ensure that the lockd daemon is running on
all the machines, and mount the directory with the 'noac' option (no
attribute caching).

Why ?!
