	:) everything is hacked.... its just a side effect that the vendors
have a 'big name' that you think its not :)

	Is NFS3ERR_JUKEBOX a posix error? Is it in Linux? Grep the sources
and see.......

	Quite possibly it could be a bug, but I doubt it. More than likely
it is Sun's own 'standard', that hasnt been implemented into linux.

	Hacked? That's a strange way to describe support for large scale
data management

	I have had a response from a Sun engineer (on the Linux NFS list)
which said
	that the Solaris client waits and then retries after recieving an
	NFS3ERR_JUKEBOX from the server. This error code is present in the
	include files shiped with Solaris.

	Not out of the question, but that would mean becoming familiar with
the Linux
	NFS code base. No small task that one.

	Yes, there are several people on the Linux NFS list, to which this
message has
	also been posted.

	It would be great if someone on this list was able to help also.
