Hi!

This may be yet another bug in NFS.

InnoDB puts an advisory lock on the ibdata files when it starts.

Are you are absolutely sure that no other mysqld was running? Did you check with

ps -fA

?

If no other mysqld was running, then maybe NFS failed to remove that lock when the file is closed. Or, file locking did not work at all in NFS.

We recommend not running MySQL or InnoDB on NFS files. There are so many reported bugs from NFS.

Regards,

Heikki
