  • Microsoft Windows Services for UNIX 3.5


On an AIX 4.1.5-based Network File System (NFS) server or on an AIX 3.2.5-based NFS server, you use Microsoft Windows Services for UNIX 3.5 at a NFS client. If you try to delete a file on the NFS server from the NFS client, the file still exists.

Note This problem has been reported on AIX 4.1.5-based NFS servers.


This problem occurs because the NFS server does not finish the series of the NFS commands that are used to delete a file. Therefore, the file still exists on the NFS server even if you try to delete the file from the NFS client.
