I've the problem that I can't change (zip) a file because of this message. I believe it's a stale nfs file ...
Can I find the 'other' link to this file?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I think you may need to use the -f option in gzip.
Force compression or decompression even if the file has multiple
links or the corresponding file already exists, or if the
compressed data is read from or written to a terminal. If the
input data is not in a format recognized by gzip, and if the
option --stdout is also given, copy the input data without change
to the standard ouput: let zcat behave as cat. If -f is not
given, and when not running in the background, gzip prompts to
verify whether an existing file should be overwritten.

If we export a file with link , NFS client will look the same link order.
SERVER: /exp_dir/test --> /var/tmp/test
CLIENT: /mnt_dir/test ---> It will try to access the client's /var/tmp/test file
We have to have the link files with in the exported directory

I finally found the stale file with simple command: find / ".nfs*" :-)
(Sometimes it's good to sleep over a problem)
With fuser I found the process of this stale file and I killed it.
RJ's solution worked, but didn't show the stale file.

It was not a export problem, but nevertheless thanks
