Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

NFS write failed for server string: RPC: Timed out


This error can occur when a file system is soft mounted, and server or network response time lags. Any data written to the server during this period could be corrupted.


If you intend to write on a file system, never specify the soft-mount option. Use the default hard mount for all the file systems that are mounted read-write.
