Clearing NFS locks on a Network Appliance Filer

To remove stuck file locks:

  1. Login to appliance
  2. Enter priv set advanced
  3. To clear all current locks, enter: sm_mon -l
    To clear locks for a single client system, enter sm_mon -l client
  4. Enter priv set
Note that priv set advanced is advertised as mind-bogglingly dangerous and is therefore not to be used without the guidance of support.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
