Sometime NFS can result in to weird problems. For example NFS mounted directories sometimes contain stale file handles. If you run command such as ls or vi you will see an error: $ ls .: Stale File Handle First let us try to understand the concept of Stale File Handle. Managing NFS and NIS , 2nd Edition book defines filehandles as follows (a good book if you would like to master NFS and NIS): A filehandle becomes stale whenever the file or directory referenced by the handle is removed by another host, while your client still holds an active reference to the object. A typical example occurs when the current directory of a process, running on your client, is removed on the server (either by a process running on the server or on another client).
The Fallacies of Distributed Computing are a set of assumptions that L. Peter Deutsch and others at Sun Microsystems originally asserted programmers new to distributed applications invariably make. These assumptions ultimately prove false, resulting either in the failure of the system, a substantial reduction in system scope, or in large, unplanned expenses required to redesign the system to meet its original goals.
