Datapump fails with ORA-27086 on NFS

Error :

Export: Release - Production on Tuesday, 2 June, 2015 11:27:50
Copyright (c) 2003, 2007, Oracle.  All rights reserved.
Connected to: Oracle Database 10g Release - Production
ORA-39001: invalid argument value
ORA-39000: bad dump file specification
ORA-31641: unable to create dump file "/backup-nfs/testdb/export/exportfull.dmp"
ORA-27086: unable to lock file - already in use
Linux Error: 37: No locks available
Additional information: 10


The problem was with NFS locking deamons.

It is most likely due to the locking in the unix system . For this just restart the service locking services

Checking if 'nfslock' service is running:

# service nfslock status
rpc.statd is stopped

Start 'nfslock' service:

# /etc/init.d/nfslock start
Starting NFS statd:                                        [  OK  ]



# service nfslock status
rpc.statd (pid  4943) is running...
 Starting 'nfslock' service resolved my problem and started performing export to NFS.
