Problem

File locking is not working on 6.x and FCFSHA 5.1Sp1 for NFS.

Error Message

Oct 29 07:19:26 servername rpc.mountd[62947]: authenticated unmount request from ip-address for /export/data25 (/export/data25)
Oct 29 07:23:40 servername rpc.statd[62958]: Failed to insert: creating /var/lib/nfs/statd/sm/techradl16.rad.com: Permission denied
Oct 29 07:23:40 servername rpc.statd[62958]: STAT_FAIL to servername for SM_MON of ip-address
Oct 29 07:23:40 servername kernel: lockd: cannot monitor techradl16
 

Cause

Both the sm and sm.bak links for rhel6 are owned by root and not rpcuser.  

Solution

Once ownership is changed to 'rpcuser' this works.
