NFS mount from NetApp hangs

We had a problem that would come and go for months on a Solaris 10 server. Any NFS mount from the old NetApp 940C’s on this server would hang. Also, the backup by Networker of the root filesystem ( /) would fail each time. The workaround was that we would unmount any NFS filesystem from the two NetApps. The backups would then succeed.

We discovered that ipsecinit.conf was present in /etc/inet. It was only present on this server. The fix was to remove the file to prevent it starting up again. We also issued the ipsecconf -F which flushes the cache apparently and more of less turns it off as well. This works without a reboot.
