Mmmm, we have a mix of w2k and NT clients, but the problem also exists with NT.
Isnt rpc.statd only used for NFS locking stuff?
At the dataserver we also run a NFS server, but at the apps server does not,
also disabling kernel oplocks did not help, so I think the problem is something else
with me :/.
