A stale file handle typically occurs as NFS is a stateless operation contradictory to the stateful operations on local file systems. Now, that means, the NFS subsystem can have a user modifying a file and at the same time another person removing it!. Are you sure the file system you are exporing is still there, because the example i gave above is a typical example for a stale file handle. Hope the info helps. Since, your new to ITRC, there is a points system. Do assign the appropriate points.

This mainly happens because of inconsistent VG minor no.s fot shared VGs in Cluster
Export and Import VGs in all the cluster nodes with same minor no.s for all VGs, It will solve your problem..
This is tested in our environment..
